>> So at this point, I have no idea if I'm registered to vote. If I am not registered to vote. If I voted legally. If my vote will count. I just don't know.>> Kenyette Barnes voted on October 15th, the first day of early voting in Georgia. Two weeks later she said she received a letter from the board of elections letting her know her voter status was pending, due to an issue with her address.
00:00:30
Barnes said she had successfully notified election officials of her change of address in late September. A non-partisan political consultant, she describes herself as savvy.>> For this to happen to me, for me to be confused about this. I only wonder how many other people are dealing with this right now?
00:00:51
>> Voting rights has become a central issue in the Georgia race for governor. One of the most closely watched campaigns in the nation. A series of court rulings on suppression and last minute allegations of fraud, threatening to upend the race.>> This shows a pattern of voter suppression on the part of Brian Kemp.
00:01:08
>> Abrams on Monday slammed allegations from the Republican, Brian Kemp, who also oversees the states elections that Democrats tried to hack voter registration systems. She says it proves Kemp has been lax in securing voters data.>> Brian Kemp was informed of this flaw in his security system on Friday.
00:01:26
He failed to act and instead on Sunday, without any evidence, decided to try to cast dispersions on Democrats. We have nothing to do with this.>> Hemp on Monday said he was just doing his job. Critics are calling it an abuse of power, especially since he's been accused repeatedly of trying to hamper voter turnout.
00:01:44
>> But our biggest concern is confusion.>> Voting groups like the ACLU have taken Kemp to task over the many loopholes voters face.>> A lot of these rules are purposely designed to be complicated so as to disenfranchise people and deter people from voting.>> As for Barnes, she says she's fed up with the process.
00:02:05
>> I think it's complete bullshit. I'm sorry, I mean, I don't know how to say it. I've worked in politics for years, and I've never experienced anything like this.
