Republicans and voter surpression!

Regarding Georgia: A]ttempts by prominent Democrats—including the president—to tie SB 202 to the Jim Crow era are incredibly disingenuous. For starters, the bill actually expands voting access for most Georgians, mandating precincts hold at least 17 days of early voting—including two Saturdays, with Sundays optional—leading up to the election," the Dispatch staff wrote. "Voting locations during this period must be open for at least eight hours, and can operate between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Several states (including Biden’s home state of Delaware, which will not implement it until 2022) do not currently allow any in-person early voting, and plenty, like New Jersey, offer far fewer than 17 days."

Pretty much puts an end to the BS.

If all these bills expand voting then we volunteer to return to the low turnout more suppressive versions. Thanks anyhow.

During the Jim Crow era, laws that looked neutral on their face were specifically designed to target Black voters. Today, legislators across the country are considering bills that will have the same effect. Nowhere is this more obvious than in Georgia, where last week, Gov. Brian Kemp signed into law an omnibus bill that targets Black voters with uncanny accuracy.

It’s now a crime in Georgia to give a bottle of water or a snack to people waiting in line to vote. We know that in Georgia and across the country, hours-long lines to vote are more often in Black and brown communities. Mobile voting (polling sites on wheels that travel to different set locations) is also now illegal in Georgia — a practice that has only been used in Fulton County, which has the largest Black population in the state. Ballot drop boxes must now be located inside early voting sites instead of other convenient locations, and many voters who plan to vote by mail must provide a driver’s license or state ID number.

These laws will disproportionately harm Black, brown, and Native American voters. Legislators tried to pass even more onerous laws — like canceling vote by mail but preserving it for the segment of the electorate that tilts white and more conservative — but faced a sustained and effective outcry.

“It’s sick,” said President Biden about the Georgia law and the over 253 bills proposed across the country that would make voting harder.

it's racist to say certian ethnic groups DON't HAVE id's....... WHAT IS THE REASON THAT LIBERALS THINK THAT BLACKS DON'T HAVE GUBBERMENT ISSUED id's?
I feel like there’s something I’m missing. And I mean that honestly, if this is just about IDs, this is insane.

So, if they take everything else out but the ID requirements, is it still racist?

POCs cant afford IDs and are unable to wait in a 2 hour line without food and water. I feel their pain. Surely antifa can give POC justice by burning down dollar store and gas stations.

Makes so much sense, since we did win the election in 2016. Good work unHappy. And ironic, in that what you have described the Rs as wanting, the D's have already done. Part of your play book. Accuse the other side of doing exactly what you are doing.
That is trumpian

One political party wants children, noncitizens, felons, and the chemically dependent mentally ill to vote.

Anyone who thinks that's a bad idea is a racist.

Looks like alot of very good ideas. Not sure why this is controversial. Really silly MLB is punishing Georgia for these reasonable laws.

Their argument that Blacks won't vote if there isn't snack time, may be the single most racist condescending demeaning deplorable disgusting pant load of poo generated since the beginning of perpetual victimhood.

They think they're that stupid.

Could address the four hour lines.

Why do you need 17 days to vote?

Why is a sitting president who is the most influential politician in the republican party calling Sec. of States and Board of Election officials asking them to change the voting results.

Fast forward...GQP putting forth new laws that allow partisan, elected officials to override impartial board of election officials.
