Stacey Abrams, Democratic nominee for governor of Georgia. Kemp, the Republican nominee for governor, is locked in an extremely tight race with Democrat Stacey Abrams. According to records obtained from Kemp’s office through a public records request, [Marsha] Appling-Nunez’s application —like many of the 53,000 registrations on hold with Kemp’s office — was flagged because it ran afoul of the state’s “exact match” verification process. Appling-Nunez says she never saw any notice from Kemp’s office indicating a problem with her application. If Kemp wins, Republicans around the country will celebrate it as further proof of the efficacy of their vote suppression strategy.
