Would Georgia Bill Outlaw Giving Food, Water to Voters Waiting in Line?

Would Georgia Bill Outlaw Giving Food, Water to Voters Waiting in Line?”

"Quantity is important, but we have to look at the quality of votes, as well".

A voting rights group is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to consider its lawsuit that aimed to make mail-in ballots available to all in voters for last fall's election. The various proposed laws are geared toward targeting certain aspects of the state's voting systems, namely its vote-by-mail system that contributed to Arizona residents' turning the state blue during the last presidential election.

About 5 million voters turned out in Georgia in the 2020 election, with approximately 1.3 million people voting remotely.

"They saw what we're capable of - and they fear it".

Coincidentally, the All-Star Game proceedings were also relocated from Indianapolis to Atlanta due to the NCAA college Tournament.

Former President Jimmy Carter on Tuesday released a statement condemning the Republican-controlled Legislature of his home state of Georgia for attempting to "turn back the clock" on voting rights with new bills that activists have decried as the most severe attack on the franchise since the Jim Crow era.

The video ends with a push to the More Than a Vote website. Biden is only the second Democrat to win the state since 1948.

"For us, this was never about one election", James says, as images from the Civil Rights Movement flash across the screen. It's always been more than a vote.

According to CNN, Republican lawmakers in Arizona's state legislature have unveiled more than two dozen proposed voting laws to make it more hard for residents to vote. State lawmakers across the country have filed more than 200 bills in 43 states that would limit ballot access in future elections, according to the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University, which tracks such data.

I predict they will mobilize hordes of volunteers - very possibly armed with tasty snacks - who not only can explain each one of these laws, but will do whatever it takes to help voters to comply. Many Black voters have historically voted on Sundays after church in what's called "souls to the polls".

Raffensperger, a Republican, said he sent reminders to poll workers to watch for any groups campaigning or trying to get people to vote against their preferences - with or without food - near polling sites, despite the fact that Georgia law at the time (and as of this writing) did not explicitly include food-giving as prohibited conduct to supposedly keep elections free and fair. It's part of the "Protect Our Power" campaign, done with agency SS+K, that will fight against the new wave of voter suppression efforts.
