Two Latino advocacy groups aren’t quite content with the efforts of Gwinnett County and its cities to comply with a new federal mandate to provide Spanish-language voting materials and assistance.

In the letter they sent Wednesday, the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials and LatinoJustice conceded that “municipalities within Gwinnett County are working together to translate materials in a standardized fashion” and that Gwinnett is “in the process of developing a bilingual registration form.”

But the groups took issue with the “outdated federal Spanish language voter registration forms and assistance guides” they said Gwinnett and its cities are using in the meantime. Their letter also claims that the cities of Auburn, Braselton, Duluth, Berkeley Lake, Snellville and Sugar Hill are using translations on their websites that are “not fully accurate nor complete.”

So what do officials representing Gwinnett County and its cities say?
