Georgia Felony Disenfranchisement and Legal Financial Obligations: NVRA Notice Letter (May 2018)

On May 11, 2018, CLC, along with the Southern Center for Human Rights, sent a letter to the Georgia Secretary of State and Georgia Director of Elections requesting records relating to the processes and procedures used by the state for identifying voters who are ineligible to vote based on a felony conviction and a determination that they have not completed their sentence. Specifically, the letter requests (1) the policies and procedures related to determining whether any given felony conviction is disqualifying because it involves moral turpitude; and (2) the policies and procedures used to determine whether service of any particular sentence is complete and the relevance of any outstanding legal financial obligations to that determination.
