    Handel preparing new rules for voters to prove citizenship
    December 3, 2009 --

    The State Election Board may put the final touches next week on Georgia’s drive to require proof of citizenship when residents register to vote. The Justice Department last spring rejected Secretary of State Karen Handel‘s effort to purge non-citizens from the voting rolls as inaccurate and racially discriminatory. The board will vote Dec. 10 on new rules, subject to federal approval, outlining acceptable proof of citizenship and creating an appeal process.
