Georgia Democrats have announced that they are suing the state over not allowing early voting on the Saturday after Thanksgiving in the Warnock-Walker Senate runoff, despite voting law saying ballot boxes can only open the following Monday.

The party says the lawsuit filed in the Superior Court of Fulton County by the Warnock for Georgia campaign, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), and the Democratic Party of Georgia is meant to "protect Georgians’ access to Saturday early voting."

"Illegal attempts to block Saturday voting are another desperate attempt by career politicians to squeeze the people out of their own democracy and to silence the voices of Georgians," Quentin Fulks, Warnock for Georgia Campaign Manager, said in a statement.

"Republicans are once again attempting to rig the system to disenfranchise voters' right to participate in our democracy," added Christie Roberts, DSCC executive director.
