AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit claiming moving the city's election date to May 20.

The city says they didn't need to approve moving the election. They believe the three Georgia state lawmakers and a handful of others' case should be dismissed.

In 2012, the department of justice found in a report that moving the election could decrease the minority vote.

The federal judge decided not to give the case to a three-judge panel and dismissed it.
