All eyes in Georgia are on a tight governor's race as Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp face off.

Kemp's actions as secretary of state have increasingly come into question as he struggles to fend off gubernatorial opponent Stacey Abrams, who is seeking to be the first ever African-American woman governor in America, and who is now polling in a dead heat.

Oprah took to Instagram the night before election day to denounce the robo-call campaign: "I heard people making racist robo-calls in my name against Stacey Abrams, who I am 100 percent for in Georgia".

Former President Obama recently joined Abrams on the campaign trail, suggesting that Kemp has "already been caught" guilty of voter suppression.

After election officials received a report Saturday that the state's voter registration website was vulnerable, they blamed the Democrats instead of correcting the issue, said Democratic Party of Georgia Executive Director Rebecca DeHart.

The woman said she declined the offer and, according to an affidavit, Beierle then slapped her on the buttocks and grabbed her. The gunman was identified as 40-year-old Scott Paul Beierle, according to the Tallahassee Police Department.

The battle for the Georgia governor's mansion intensified in its final hours Monday as Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp framed it as a stark choice for this growing and diversifying state, and prepared for another month of campaigning if no one wins a majority Tuesday.

The state Democratic Party called Kemp's accusation "a reckless and unethical ploy" and said he was using the Federal Bureau of Investigation to support "false accusations".

Even if Kemp's accusation against the Georgia Democratic Party proves false, Levin said voters - in Georgia and elsewhere - should still be vigilant for signs of potential cyberattacks on Election Day.

The Democratic Party of Georgia is pushing back against the allegations. Shortly before the 2016 presidential election, he was one of 11 secretaries of state to reject a DHS offer to run cyber-hygiene scans on his statewide voter file.

The website's vulnerability could allow someone to access personal information, such as driver's license numbers and addresses, and potentially change voter registration information without permission, said Richard DeMillo, a computer scientist at Georgia Tech.

Democrats responded to the announcement by calling it "a reckless and unethical ploy", saying Kemp was trying to gain an edge in his neck-and-neck race with Abrams. Over 53,000 voter registrations are still pending because, according to Kemp's office, the applications do not match other government records.

"I don't want anyone to vote for me because I'm black", she said. And we know what to do about that: vote.

". There have never been crowds like this - just so you understand - in the history of politics". In a highly unusual situation, Kemp has also faced criticism for the way he has overseen the election that will decide his state's highest office.

Stacey Abrams, who is now at a poll average of 45.7, sits on a campaign of encouraging younger voters to get their voices heard and take to the polling booths, hoping to expand Medicaid, which has raised a few eyebrows as well as other plans revolving around K-12 education and job creation.
