STATEMENT FROM SECRETARY KEMP REGARDING THE SUPREME COURT DECISION Shelby County v. Holder


Georgia and the rest of the nation have made tremendous progress in the past 50 years.  In recognizing that the current formulation for protection in Section Four of the Voting Rights Act is outdated and obsolete, the Supreme Court validated this progress today.  Our Constitution, our Bill of Rights and Section Two of the Voting Rights Act prohibit any form of racial discrimination within the democratic process.  As Georgia’s chief elections official, it is my sacred duty to uphold this.
