And I don't even want you to vote for us just because we're Democrats.

Online, Dolores also starred in Get Out The Vote videos in English and Spanish, urging Georgia voters to turn out for Abrams.

With two days until polls open, Brian Kemp, the Georgia Secretary of State and Republican nominee for governor, is once again using his power as the state's chief election officer to boost his chances on November 6th.

The Democratic Party of Georgia called the allegation "100 percent false" and "an abuse of power" by Kemp's office.

Kemp, who is Georgia's current secretary of state, had attempted to purge thousands of voters from the state's rolls if there wasn't an "exact match" between an individual's information on voter applications and on state databases. The calls denounced comments from Tibbetts' family members who said her death should not be used to justify hate against Latinos, the Des Moines Register reported.

In the voting integrity case, a federal judge last month endorsed the plaintiff's arguments that Kemp has been derelict in his management of the state election system and that it violates voters' constitutional rights with its lack of verifiability and reliability.


"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", the state party's executive director, Rebecca DeHart, said in a statement. On Tuesday, voters will determine which party controls the US Congress as well as pick governors in 36 states, among them Georgia. "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".

Abrams, who is in the midst of a tight race against President Donald Trump-backed Republican candidate Brian Kemp, would be the first black female governor in USA history.

Voting issues have been at the forefront of the race between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp over the course of the election. "Kemp told reporters at a pre-election rally that "[he] is not anxious about how it looks, [he] is doing [his] job". The official declined to say if the agency was investigating.

We are in the home stretch to Election Day. They contend he has been lax on securing voter data and that his office previously improperly disclosed private information on six million Georgians.

First and foremost, the results in Georgia will be a fast and clear grade of the Trump presidency - period. And in the lead-up to Election Day, Kemp's office leveled a vague accusation of "potential cyber crimes" at Georgia Democrats.

Abrams blasts Kemp as "an architect of voter suppression" for the way he's opted to enforce federal and state election laws. He has also faced multiple claims of voter suppression that disproportionately affects immigrants, black voters, and people filing absentee ballots.
