In-person early voting begins, weeks before the midterm election.

As in-person early voting gets underway, 53,000 of Georgia voter registrations are on hold. The secretary of state's office cites discrepancies in the applications and a violation of the "Exact Match" law, which was passed in 2017.

 On Second Thought's Virginia Prescott speaks with Mark Niesse.

The law requires voter registration information to match driver's licenses, state ID cards, or social security records. Now, several civil rights organizations are suing Secretary of State Brian Kemp. They want him to overturn the "Exact Match" law. Mark Niesse has been following this story for the Atlanta Journal Constitution. He spoke with us about the lawsuit and voter registration.
