In Georgia, police arrested 12 Black Lives Matter protesters Wednesday for holding balloons in front of the Capitol building that spell out “340,134”—which is the number of voters believed to have been wrongly purged from Georgia voter rolls by then-Secretary of State Brian Kemp, who’s also the Republican candidate for governor. Their protest came as a federal judge ordered Georgia election officials to review every provisional ballot cast during last week’s midterm election, while barring the state from certifying election results before Friday. Kemp has repeatedly said the “election is over” even though his challenger, progressive Democrat Stacey Abrams, is about 0.2 points away from forcing a runoff election in December.
