The civil rights groups filed as a result of sweeping new restrictions imposed by the US State of Georgia, according to a Reuters news report.

Georgia has enacted broad voting restrictions championed by Republicans that activists say aim to curtail the influence of Black voters. The Georgia law will make it a misdemeanor crime to give food or drinks to voters waiting in long lines.
