In addition, the lawsuit objects to verifying absentee ballots based on state ID numbers rather than voter signatures. ID numbers written on absentee ballot envelopes could be stolen and used to commit identity fraud, according to the lawsuit.
Other parts of the 152-page complaint oppose making it a felony to intentionally observe votes on a large touchscreen, limiting photography within polling places and prohibiting election observers from reporting issues to anyone besides election officials.
The suit alleges Georgia’s law violates protections for freedom of speech, the right to vote and separation of powers.
Separate lawsuits against Georgia’s voting law have opposed drop box restrictions, ID requirements, absentee request deadlines, provisional ballot disqualifications, food and drink limits in voting lines, and absentee ballot request mailings.
