Report: Feds Headed to Georgia After Deadline Trouble
Federal observers are on their way to Middle Georgia College in Bleckley County after elections officials apparently extended, then withdrew, a deadline to ensure student voting registrations. About 500 students from the predominantly black college registered to vote in the days leading up to the election, but about 370 were told several days ago that they needed to provide proof of residence before Election Day. Some students claim they haven't gotten their letters from the registrar yet. No media outlets in the Middle Georgia region are carrying reports about the episode but Rep. Jim Marshall (D-Ga.) said federal monitors are checking on the situation. (Election Protection)
