Civil rights groups say they plan to deploy election observers to polling sites in several Georgia counties this election.
Those observers will keep an eye out for instances of voter intimidation, said Georgia NAACP president Francys Johnson.
“They will be looking for … people who may be displaying the Confederate battle emblem, for example. Or people who will be displaying firearms within 150 feet of a polling place,” Johnson said.
The Georgia NAACP is working with the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, the ACLU and the Legal Defense Fund.
