Kemp came under fire this weekend following the release of a controversial statement to the press in which he accused the Democratic Party of Georgia of trying to hack a voter registration system.

In a blow to Kemp, a federal judge ruled Friday that Georgia must ease its "exact match" demands.

Well, Secretary of State Kemp, we have been telling you that something has been going on over the past several months, and yet here we are, one day before the election with a scandal on our hands said to be caused by the opposing party.

"The frequency and severity of the complaints make clear that we have significant work to do to fix our broken election system", said Kristen Clarke, the group's president. "This political stunt from Kemp just days before the election is yet another example of why he can not be trusted and should not be overseeing an election in which he is also a candidate for governor".

She has promised to work with any president to advance the state, but her candidacy hinges on young voters, African-American voters, women and new immigrants - basically every group that Trump has attacked and demonized throughout his presidency.

Kemp, a 54-year-old businessman who has been secretary of state since 2010, has embraced President Donald Trump as he tries to extend GOP dominance in a state that hasn't elected a Democrat to its top job since 1998.

Kemp campaign robocall: "Radical Stacey Abrams is so extreme that she wants to allow illegal immigrants to vote in this election". And in the lead-up to Election Day, Kemp's office leveled a vague accusation of "potential cyber crimes" at Georgia Democrats. He sent the email to a Democratic Party volunteer, who forwarded it to the party's voter protection director. "It's a way to say that 'If I win, I've overcome all these obstacles, ' and 'If I lose, they stole it from me'".

One of those experts, University of MI computer scientist Matthew Bernhard, told the AP that anyone with access to an individual voter's personal information could alter that voter's record in the system.

Another computer expert who reviewed the vulnerability, Kris Constable of PrivaSecTech in Vancouver, Canada, said the system "clearly has never been audited by any computer security professional". Wright could not be reached for comment on Sunday. A representative for the Department of Homeland Security confirmed the agency had been notified, but it deferred to Georgia officials for details.

But some machines across the state had technical problems Tuesday, resulting in long lines and one precinct's voting hours being extended, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. His office blamed a clerical error. On Tuesday, voters will determine which party controls the US Congress as well as pick governors in 36 states, among them Georgia.

Kemp's office laid the blame for that breach on Kennesaw State University, which managed the system on Kemp's behalf.
