Georgia Passes New Voter Legislation Limiting Absentee Ballots, Early Voting and More



Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp recently signed into law legislation that will rewrite the state's election rules. The new law will limit absentee ballots and early voting, restrict ballot drop boxes and create new voter identification requirements.



"Georgia will take another step towards ensuring our are elections are secure, accessible and fair," Kemp said.


Additionally, the law will make it illegal for voters to be given food or water by someone who isn't an election worker while standing in line.


"This makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle. This is gigantic what they're trying to do and it cannot be sustained," said President Joe Biden.


Democrats and voter advocacy groups are now looking for avenues to have the bill repealed, claiming that it's a form of voter suppression.



However, the bill does expand early voting for primary and general elections.


Counties would also be allowed to process absentee ballots weeks ahead of time and after election night, workers will continue counting ballots until they're finished.
