“These anti-voter bills create significant barriers for Georgia citizens to exercise their sacred, fundamental right to vote, especially citizens who are elderly, rural, low income, and/or disabled. Instead of celebrating the historic turnout we saw during the November election cycle, some Georgia legislators have decided to create barriers for Georgia citizens who vote- these bills are dangerous and unnecessary, because they fail to solve any problems and instead will hurt voters,” said Christopher Bruce, political director of the ACLU of Georgia. “We encourage the Georgia General Assembly to stop their efforts to make voting harder and instead to focus on protecting and expanding every Georgia citizen’s sacred, fundamental right to vote.”
