THURSDAY, JTJNK 10, 1948 FBI Probes Vote Purge in Georgia Complaints Allege Qualified Negroes Lost Ballot Rights „ .. " I>onovan >.,.„. Stiff Correspondent WASHINGTON, June 10V-(UP) —1he FBI h Investigating complaint* that almost 2,000 qualified fvegro voters were purged from a ocorgla registration last, it was disclosed today. The TO I ordered by the Justice Department to determine whether any federal civil rights statutes were violated by the alleged action In Georgia. The purge alledegly took place In Laurens County, a large and es- yential-rural area In South-Central Georgia, last October. According to the complaints, a newly-appointed board of registrars went over the regular registration lists, and notified all Negro voters that they were to appear before the board to prove they were qualified to vote. Most of the Negroes failed to show up, it was said, and their names wore then stricken from the records. 75 Percent Disqualified Justice Department sources said they have been informed that fully 75 per cent of the negroes on the list lost their right to vote under this process. They said they were investiga' l\s the case because they believe that once having qualified, the 2,000-odd Negro voters did not have to go through the process agin. Under the law, It is a violation of federal civil rights laws for anyone, under color of law, to deprive I. a citizen of rights guaranteed him by the constitution—in this case, the right to vote regardless of race or creed. Justice Department officials said the evidence unearthed by the FBI would determine whether they would take the matter to a grand Jury. But they said their main objective was re-opening the polls to time for the Georgia primary on Sept. 8. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS |SKe Likes His Looks—By Telephota Cumrp Blasts Rep.
