Mike Pence compares himself to Oprah while stumping in Georgia

Spokeswoman Katie Byrd said state attorneys were reviewing the order.

Last month, former voting rights advocacy groups sued Kemp, whose role makes him Georgia's top election official, accusing the Republican of placing voter registrations on hold to boost his campaign.

The ruling by Eleanor Ross, the US district judge for the northern district of Georgia, affects more than 3,000 people whose voter registrations were put on hold over possible citizenship issues. Following this policy, if the information does not exactly match, which often happens due to inconsistencies like misspelled names or missing hyphens - an application is held for additional screening and the applicant is notified and given a period to correct their information.

The "exact match" protocol requires information on voter registration applications to precisely match information on file with the state's Department of Motor Vehicles or the Social Security Administration. "... The election scheme here places a severe burden on these individuals".

Pence "said Thursday a vote for Brian Kemp is tantamount to support for President Donald Trump".

Civil rights groups raised concerns about the "Exact Match" law, accusing Republican gubernatorial candidate and Secretary of State Brian Kemp of engaging in voter suppression of minorities amid a tight race against Democratic opponent Stacey Abrams. Kemp has also swung back at Abrams by saying that she is advocating for "illegals to vote" for her, which Abrams denies.

Roger Federer made a comfortable start to his quest for a 100th title, dispatching Fabio Fognini in straight sets. Cilic, who has beaten Djokovic just twice in 17 meetings, ended reigning ATP Finals champion Dimitrov's season.

A federal judge on Friday ordered that new USA citizens must be allowed to vote if they show proof of citizenship at the polls.

In a statement, Kemp spokesperson Candace Broce said that the secretary of state approved of the ruling. She chose to also allow poll managers to participate in the verification process.

Julie Houk, a lawyer for the civil rights groups, said that's not what's happening.

She encouraged black and female voters to go to the polls, telling them that "for anybody here who has ancestor who didn't have right to vote. you are dishonoring your family".

"When you go to church on Sunday, tell people to go to the polls and vote", he said. "We know she's going to be the next governor", she said.
