(WTVM) – The state of Georgia has agreed to no longer put voters on an "inactive" list when they fail to confirm their new addresses after moving within the same county.

The ACLU says the state should have been automatically updating the addresses of voters who move within the same county instead of declaring the voters "inactive" if they forgot to mail back a letter to confirm their new address.

Kemp says this settlement ensures the state's voter rolls are "up-to-date and preventing voter fraud."
