Today, Wednesday, February 17, 2021, Georgia Senators in a Senate subcommittee voted along party lines to advance bills to end at-will absentee ballot voting and to require an ID number in requesting an absentee ballot, creating new restrictions and essentially creating voter suppression. The bills now head to the Full Senate Ethics Committee.
Our democracy works best when all eligible voters can participate and have their voices heard. In the General Election 1.3 million Georgians used absentee ballots, resulting in historic voter turnout. No excuse absentee voting provided an opportunity to level the playing field and make voting safer for ALL Georgians, especially in the midst of this coronavirus Pandemic.
Your VOTING RIGHTS are under ASSAULT!!
Tell your Senator that you oppose all voter suppression attempts and ask them to support your right to vote.
Our goal should be the protection of the fundamental right to vote for ALL citizens by assuring that voting is as easy and as convenient as possible.
