Judge orders Ga. election officials to keep paper backups of voter rolls

A federal judge presiding over a lawsuit challenging Georgia’s voting system ruled Monday that every polling place in the Peach State must have a paper backup of the list used to check voter eligibility as a safeguard in case electronic pollbooks malfunction on Election Day. U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg, a Barack Obama appointee, said the backup plan requiring state election officials to provide paper copies of a list showing who is registered to vote and whether they’ve submitted an absentee ballot before Nov. 3 is essential to protecting the right to vote in Georgia.
