Elections and Voting

The fundamental right to vote is the foundation of fair, effective, democratic self-government.


Lawyers help people, and the rule of law helps lawyers help people. That all starts with civic engagement and political participation. The right to vote, to cast a ballot as intended and have that ballot counted as cast with a meaningful result, will not protect itself. Neither will rights of speech, association, petition, and other critical faculties of the body politic. This becomes more difficult as technology and politics collide at ever-increasing speed.

When voters, communities, associations or organizations voice a concern about election practices, we are prepared to help. Our lawyers work to ensure that data, security, technology, equipment, and oversight informing voter registration, voting practices, counting and tabulation, and political participation conform to our civil rights and responsibilities as Georgians and as Americans.
