A federal judge was asked Wednesday for a second time to order Georgia to extend the voter registration deadline in coastal areas that evacuated for Hurricane Matthew.
The American Civil Liberties Union sued Georgia to compel the state to extend the voter registration deadline by six days past October 11 in five coastal counties because offices were closed during and after Hurricane Matthew. That area sustained some of the worst damage, particularly in spots around bridges, officials said.
Hurricane Matthew, a Category 5 storm, formed in the Caribbean Sea in late September and hit Haiti and several other Caribbean countries early this month before moving up to the southeastern United States. Hurricane Matthew and its subsequent flooding and storm surges has been responsible for 46 deaths across Florida, Georgia, and South and North Carolina.
McCrory told reporters in New Bern on Monday that one of the 26 deaths previously attributed to Matthew has been determined not to have been caused by the storm.
