The Georgia State Election Board will continue an investigation into Democratic Sen. Raphael Warnock for his work with a voter registration group founded by Stacey Abrams.

The board voted on Wednesday to refer the case to the attorney general’s office regarding the allegation that the New Georgia Project failed to submit voter registration applications by the necessary deadline in 2019. Republican Attorney General Chris Carr’s office will investigate the allegations and can bring charges or impose fines.

The state election board voted 3-0 to move the case forward, with the lone Democrat David Worley recusing himself from the vote. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is the chairman of the board, but he generally does not vote unless he needs to act as a tie-breaker.

The New Georgia Project has been accused of failing to deliver 1,268 voter registration applications to the Gwinnett County elections office within the 10-day window required by state election rules.
