In Georgia, a federal judge has ordered elections officials to reopen early voter registration ahead of a June 20 special election for the state’s 6th Congressional District. The election pits Democrat Jon Ossoff against Republican Karen Handel in a race that’s surprisingly close for a conservative district—and which could be a bellwether for the 2018 midterm elections. Georgia shut down voter registration on March 20, but with Thursday’s order, residents will have until May 21 to register.
