Black voters ask Supreme Court for help over racial issue related to election

A group of black voters in Georgia has asked the Supreme Court to block the state’s method for choosing members of a regulatory panel that they argue discriminates based on race.

The Monday request involves a new approach to select members of the Georgia Public Service Commission.

“Georgia is home to millions of Black citizens whose voting power has been unlawfully diluted by the at-large method of electing Public Service Commissioners,” the group wrote in the filing.

“That will continue for yet another election cycle unless this Court intervenes now to stop it,” it added.

The election for the commission has already been postponed over the matter that claims the structure violates the Voting Rights Act.

The lawsuit now finds itself as one part of many election concerns related to Georgia since the 2020 election, including a recent subpoena of South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham.
