Georgia Governor Passes Restrictive Voting Law


After reliably Republican Georgia voted overwhelmingly for Democrat Joe Biden in 2020 election Georgia passes the most restrictive voting laws since the Jim Crow era...

From CNN
The new law imposes new voter identification requirements for absentee ballots, empowers state officials to take over local elections boards, limits the use of ballot drop boxes and makes it a crime to approach voters in line to give them food and water.
Advocates said they were alarmed by measures that will allow any Georgian to lodge an unlimited number of challenges to voter registrations and eligibility, saying it could put a target on voters of color. And Democrats in the Georgia Senate on Thursday lambasted measures that boot the secretary of state as chairman of the state elections board and allow lawmakers to install his replacement, giving lawmakers three of five appointments.
Voting rights groups argue that granting the state new powers over county elections bucks the tradition of local control and could lead to a scenario in which state officials swoop in to prevent a county from certifying its election results. Another provision shortens the runoff cycle from the current nine weeks to just four weeks
The bill is part of a larger effort by GOP-led legislatures across the country to pass restrictive voting measures in key states like Arizona, Michigan and Florida. As of February, state legislators in 43 states have introduced more than 250 bills with restrictive voting provisions, according to a tally from the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University.

All this despite no founded allegations of widespread voter fraud, just record turnout. Crazy part about it is broke white republicans benefitting from the stimmy that they wouldn't have gotten under Trump.

White Male Republicans have no shame in trying to maintain their power position.

It's all kinda over my head anyway, I live in Florida, I show up at my polling place with my DL and cast my vote in about 15 minutes. I guess this is meant to further disenfranchise rural, and extremely poor or uninspired voters IDK. But it'll backfire.

It’s another way of them putting their foots on our necks. I hope Black folk will jump through hoops to vote in Georgia. I certainly would.

I have no problems showing i.d. to vote. They claim it will undermine blacks from voting. Black people have i.d. to get liquor, food stamps, banks, drivers license, flights etc. The democrats just want illegals to vote.

Until blacks in the south realize they are the majority and show these krakkas, what's up these shenanigans will continue, by the paranoid whites who know their rule on this planet is finished. That shady ass Scorpio from Athens is only doing what his raggedly, racist ass ancestors did. He's feeling himself since stealing the election from Stacy. It does not matter through the age of aquarius is the age of wokeness so it does not matter, what the minority race does their time is up, so these last little shenanigans is all they have to keep trying to hold on, with kung fu death grip. We will survive this like we have survived great atrocities, if these nubians in the south was not still so hopped up on Jesus juice, we might be further along, no worries through the next generation is not here for white jesus and his shenanigans. Stacy did her job and flexed on all these racist hoes, the age of aquarius is the return of the divine feminine from her sleep in the underworld, we ain't worried about these troglodytes and their shenanigans. I'm looking out my bedroom window right now in Conyers typing this, the storm passed up over, Oya was not fucking us up, she went right to those racist ass spots and fucked their asses up. Age of aquarius is also the age the infant reaps the karma they have sown on this planet, we see becky and her rotten ass fruits shooting up the place, doing mass domestic terrorism, they will see the fruits of their ancestors so I say let them have their last hurrahs. Invest no energy or emotions into their fuckery, you can't do more than your time.

@1044 there are over 300 million people in the united States and little over half voted. It seems like there is plenty of opportunity to get citizens to turn out to vote. I think most illegals would be afraid of committing a federal crime guaranteeing they get arrested and deported. I have no issue with Americans believing the voting isn't completely proper but so far no evidence supports it and the theories aren't logical.

Wow, I am so sorry that I've riled you guys up. Voter I.D. is needed especially in New York. The voter fraud has been issue for years against the black community from the jews. The jewish community would vote many times by sending different people to vote in their name. When this was discovered, black people suggested i.d., it is the jewish democrats that started screaming this will hinder black votes. Then used black activist that are in their pockets to repeat this rhetoric.

@ 12:13 - Ms. Warrior - Thank you for breaking it all the way down and for your ongoing insight.

This is 100% their last hurrah and they are running scared after sowing nothing but seeds of death.

(Sow the wind, reap the whirlwind but they're trying to manipulate energy they're already released which can't be done.)

Thank you and please tell us if you ever set up a blog, etc.
