ATLANTA - A federal judge will soon decide whether Georgia’s Voter Signature Match Law is unconstitutional.
Under current law, the state can reject absentee ballots if the voter's signature doesn't match the one on file.
Tuesday morning, attorneys for the ACLU argued in court that signatures may change for a variety of reasons like age, disability, and injury.
And they argued voters should have an opportunity to dispute any findings of mismatched signatures.
Georgia's Signature Match Law is not the only one being challenged in court.
Civil rights groups have also sued over the state's "exact match" policy which puts voter applications on hold when the state finds even minor discrepancies between the application and official government records.
