Follow the Filings of Georgia Election Lawsuits

The Coalition’s Home Page presents some additional details about its legal work to support Georgians' fundamental right to vote, and the links on this Current Projects Page present recent court filingsfilings. Please donate to exclusively support the legal work.

Executive Director Marilyn Marks recently found an additional disturbing effect of already alarming 127,000 missing votes in the November 2018 Georgia Lieutenant Governor contest: The votes disproportionately disappeared in precincts with voter registrations that were predominantly African American.

The Root broke the story on February 9 after studying our data and talking with experts:

Exclusive: Thousands of Black Votes in Georgia Disappeared and No One Can Explain It

You can also see our Coalition for Good Governance report on her discovery.

No other organization in the country is looking at the problem of paperless voting the way that the Coalition is. If you would like to support our work on this important issue, now is a good time. None of the three board members of the Coalition receive any remuneration. Donations go only to cover legal and research fees and expert witness expenses.


The trial on the merits of the April 4, 2018, Third Amended Complaint has not been scheduled, but should be planned soon as, on February 7, 2019, the State lost its appeal of the initial rulings of the Court. The discovery phase of the lawsuit begins immediately. We are anxious to move forward to prove the very real problems of electronic voting, which impact every voter in Georgia and millions of other American voters.
