U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg has ordered Georgia not to use its paperless voting machines, election management software, or servers for the 2020 election, requiring the state to implement a new voting system in time for the presidential primaries.

Georgia is currently acquiring new electronic voting machines and vote-counting software.

The court order will prevent the state from relying on its paperless voting machines and election management software if the replacement infrastructure is not ready in time; should this happen, Georgia may have to fall back on paper ballots.

Attorney David Cross said the order “is a big win for all Georgia voters and those working across the country to secure elections and protect the right to vote."
