Abrams, who would be the nation's first black female governor, has called Kemp "an architect of voter suppression" and says he's used his current post to make it harder for certain voters to cast ballots.

Stacey Abrams has been running for governor of Georgia against Brian Kemp, who is also the secretary of state of Georgia, which means he oversees elections. President Donald Trump has rallied in the state on behalf of Kemp, while former President Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey have made appearances on behalf of Abrams.

After election officials received a report Saturday that the state's voter registration website was vulnerable, they blamed the Democrats instead of correcting the issue, said Democratic Party of Georgia Executive Director Rebecca DeHart.

Channel 3's Caitlyn Chastain is in Atlanta tonight at an Abrams watch party to bring you full coverage from Georgia. The "scurrilous claims are 100 percent false", Georgia Democrats said, accusing Kemp of showing "another example of abuse of power".

Capehart said Georgia is stuck being "the Georgia of Gone With the Wind", citing Abrams' opponent Brian Kemp tying her to the Black Panthers by tweeting a picture of some party members with Abrams signs.

"We are working with our private sector vendors and investigators to review data logs", said Candice Broce, spokeswoman for the Secretary of State's Office. These states typically vote Democratic in presidential elections but in 2016 swung to Trump, securing his win in the electoral college system that tallies wins in states, even as he lost the national popular vote.

The contest has turned bitter as Abrams and Kemp traded charges of shenanigans. Democrats also have blasted Kemp over 53,000 voter registrations that his office flagged as pending ahead of Tuesday's election. "I don't want anyone to vote for me because I'm black", she told supporters in Savannah on Monday.

There are seats and positions up for election all over the United States, but for VSU students, the race that everyone has their eyes on is the Georgia's gubernatorial race of a lifetime. 11th hour, cynical ploys come as no surprise from Brian Kemp, a man who raided the offices of organizations who register people to vote and had a woman arrested for helping her blind father cast his ballot.

"The Kemp campaign has no case and must immediately retract their defamatory accusations", the party stated. Also, when cybersecurity expert Logan Lamb showed how the system's servers could be exploited to reveal the passwords, voter rolls, and voting machine software, the Coalition for Good Governance wanted the Federal Bureau of Investigation to examine the servers.

The state is one of just five that continue to rely exclusively on aged electronic voting machines that computer scientists have long criticized as untrustworthy because they are easily hacked and don't leave a paper trail that can be audited in case of problems.

Suppressing the vote of the dead is probably a good idea if you want a free and fair election.
