High black voter turnout could tip Georgia to Democrats

Phillis Malone played a small part in organized efforts across the state this year that have boosted the number of newly registered black voters to nearly 240,000, almost 30 percent more than were registered in the 10 months before the 2004 election. Black voters now make up close to a third of Georgia's registered voters. How they turn out in this election — where they're expected in substantial numbers — could decide the state's presidential pick and the U.S. Senate race.
