Georgia passes election integrity bill that includes voter ID law

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) just signed an election bill into law that will strengthen the state’s voting rules by limiting the number of ballot drop boxes and establishing photo ID requirements for absentee voters.

Senate Bill 202 passed the Georgia’s General Assembly 100-75 in the House and 34-20 in the Senate. The bill focuses on additional voting rules to make future elections safer and more secure for Georgians.

The bill will “require voters to provide a driver’s license or state-issued ID card number to request and submit absentee ballots, and it would curtail the use of ballot drop boxes, limiting their placement to early-voting locations and making them accessible only while the precinct is open.”

Other features of Senate Bill 202 include the Georgia State Elections Board overseeing county election boards in areas where oversight is needed. The runoff election period will also shorten from nine weeks after the general election to four weeks.

Former Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) tweeted, “2020 saw rapid and inconsistent changes to our elections. Today’s passage of SB202 will restore confidence by strengthening election integrity & expanding access to voting. Thank you to the Georgia Legislature & Governor for your leadership in this effort.

Stacey Abrams, the former Georgia Democrat candidate and voting rights leader, argued, “What’s likely to come for SB 202: quick passage by GA Senate & a speedy signature by Kemp,” Abrams tweeted. “Why? To avoid actual analysis + public awareness of how SB 202 hurts voters of color, increases taxes on struggling families & steals power from local governments.”

Republicans have responded the bill improves voting rights for all people and does not place additional burden on people of color. The goal is to increase public confidence following controversies in Georgia following the 2020 presidential election.

The measure will also help in future runoff elections. In January 20221, Georgia held an important runoff for two U.S. Senators that changed the balance of power to Democrats.

  1. Google pay 390$ reliably my last paycheck was $55000 working 10 hours out of consistently on the web. My increasingly youthful kinfolk mate has been averaging 20k all through continuous months and he works around 24 hours reliably. I can’t trust how direct it was once I attempted it out. This is my essential concern…:) For more info visit any tab on this site Thanks a lot GOOD LUCK………._ http://www.works91.com

  2. Voter Picture I.D. needs to be a law in every state. It does not hurt anyone’s ability to vote.
    If I were black, I would be insulted that Democrats think I am too stupid to be able to get a state issued picture I.D.
    Democrats hate Voter I.D. laws cause they know that illegal aliens will no longer be able to get away with voting in our elections.

      1. This bill should be called voter suppression The republicans know that they can’t win an election with the popular vote so they resort to cheating. Why not change your policies and get the public to vote for more republican politicians instead of cheating to try to win

        1. BS. Every state that I lived in required a picture ID to vote. Better to prove who you are than to have your vote stolen. It is not a problem to get a state issued ID. Better to vote Republican than to have the Demon rats to steal our money and use it to buy votes.

        2. WHY DO YOU PERSIST IN THINKING THAT BLACKS CANNOT VOTE WITHOUT DROP BOXES AND IF THEY HAVE I.D??? YOU NEED ID FOR EVERYTHING, BUT DEMS CANNOT WIN WITHOUT MAKING EASY TO CHEAT ON ELECTIONS. THIS NATION IS MADE WITH ELECTORAL COLLEGFE,NOT POP VOTE, DID YOU COMPLAIN WHEN OBAMA,OR CLINTON WON???? NO. SO TAKE IT LIKE A MAN THEN.

        3. Tell me Bo, how would the Republicans have to cheat? This bill, signed into law does just one thing, makes it harder to commit voter fraud. My opinion is there shouldn’t be any early or mail in ballots. If you can walk to your mailbox then you can get to a poll and cast your vote in person. If you’re not a citizen of the United States, you don’t get a vote, it’s that simple.

        4. The republicans were not the ones that cheated The democrats are the ones that pulled the suitcases of ballots out that were illegal We are tired of the lies

    1. They are trying to make it easy for them to commit fraud. It worked in the last election and Conservatives left Trump fighting alone. But enough is enough and Americans need to uni8te and overturn this last election. What is really bad is the Supreme Court ignoring their sworn duty to uphold the Constitution.

      1. I could not agree more..We cannot wait till the next time..They tried this in 2016 but never dreamed that Trump would get the amount of votes he got and just did not go far enough. That was in Florida..this time they took no chances..We did not give Pres. Trump the support he needed although we gave him the only support we knew to give him..our vote…and that was denied us by the election fraud and the courts ..all of them..that refused to hear any of this. We did not lose in ourt we never got our day in court and that is Constitutionally wrong as is so much else. I do not know what the answer is I do know that something has to be done.

        1. Angie Harsh. I totally agree with your comment. We are registered voters in our 70’s, but my husband is disabled. We were unable to go to the polls together so we requested 2 absentee ballots from the town where we reside, pay taxes and are registered voters in NYS and they mailed our ballots to us. We both filled them out and I personally took them to our designated voting destination on voting night and handed the man with the lock box at the door. All very legitimate.

          1. Pamela, I totally understand your situation as described and sympathize with you and your husband. Here is what you need to totally understand; handing your ballots to a person at the door, (God only knows who that was and how your vote was handled after you left). I’m sure you likely did the best you could; and much of America did the best they could given their situation. More HAS TO BE DONE in order for a fair election to happen again in America. Too many crooks in high places; all this has to be torn down and replaced or there will be no need to bother with voting again. My biggest fear is that the one person we had that likely could have found a way with God’s help to make fairness happen was railroaded out of the oval office by PURE FRAUD. Joe Biden even told America on national TV what was going to happen prior to Nov 3rd, as it did TO THE LETTER. Courts from the lowest to the highest paid it no attention. Appears maybe a few are starting to wake up. Is it too little, too late? We are in very DANGEROUS times.

    2. Bridgit,
      Texas has similar laws that REQUIRE a photo I.D. in order to vote and it Guarantees Citizens right to vote. Only Democrats DO NOT want that requirement that would allow non-citizens to vote in American Elections.

  3. Stacey Abrams says the SB 202 impacts voters of color. HOW? By requiring photo ID? So you can prove what color you are?
    She is senseless!!!

    1. Stacey Abrams and her sister worked together to rig the 2020 election. They bothe belomg in Gitmo… NOT our government!

        1. SHEEP- WAKE UP– YOU ARE INDOCTRINATED WORM FROM CNN AND OTHER INDOCTRINATION LEFTY COMMIE BRAINWASHING MACHINERY OF CASTRO.- ALL THE LEFTIES HAVE BEEN PROVEN WRONG AND LIARS ON 98% OF EVERYTHING THAT COMES OUT OF THEIR BEAK. TRUMP BEST PRESIDENT IN USA HISTORY 3 TIMES NOMINATED FOR NOBEL PEACE PRIZE. I KNOW YOU HATE AUTHORITY FIGURES,PLEASE READ ISAIAH 5:20

    2. They shouldn’t be pulling the race card all of he time We are just as good as they are That’s how they get their way

  4. Awesome news!! After tirelessly working with The Club for Growth Action, texting Republican voters in Georgia during the January run-off election, then losing, it was surreal. And the Republican candidates lost only because of voter fraud. It was strikingly evident even then. Now, if we can get the other states to follow suit, we MIGHT actually regain some voting integrity. It’s truly sad that the Dems feel they have to cheat to win. If they would cater to the people, instead of their bank accounts, they might be able to fairly win an election.

  5. This should not even be an issue!!!! we never had problems before this election, this was brought on by the democraps!! Voter fraud leads to government takeover! Let’s bring AMERICA back to the people!

  6. I have been a crazy optimist for most of my 88 years, however, I feel that corruption is such a major role in our current elections that no matter what our over-paid and under-worked legislators try, every election from here on out will be loaded with fraud. Thank you Democrats!

  7. Stacey Abrams needs to stop making excuses for people of color. Everyone owns a brain and I’m pretty sure they know how to use it. You need an ID for everything , please stop with the BS.

    1. I agree with you stop the bs and voter ID. EVER HURT ANYONE BEFORE WHY CHANGE NOW? Unless dems are afraid they will lose!

  8. I agreed u need to show ID for other thing s this is great now them sick Democrats can’t steal the vote anymore because we know the legal aliens voted in the 2020 and there was a lot of thought as well plus the Democratics always speak about color none of them are black so I don’t know why they always speak about the race color you know you got to be dumb to even listen to the poison democratics
    I am so so happy if u don’t have a NYS ID u can’t vote that is great no more fraud and no more drop off boxes as well very good thank u Lord

  9. Every state in USA needs voter ID and verification of address and citizenship. Biden isallowing al the illegals in to vote Democratic. he and present admin could care less about Americans. We are bottom of the list. WINNING AND HOLDIN OFFICE is primary issue. BS

  10. Now if the GOP will clean up their RINOS that keep getting on the voting slate more headway could be made. You know who they are, so do you’re job.

  11. WAY TO GO GEORGIA!!!! Should be the law throughout the USA especially now that the Dumbocrats are trying to boost their voting population with illegals.

  12. There should be NO voter drop boxes. Democrats cheat by taking a giant step forward and then teeny weeny steps back, then another giant step forward. This concession for allowing voter boxes goes against any concept of voter security. It doesn’t matter what is “open” at the time. What matters is that this box will now receive as many fraudulent ballots as a sneaky person can drop in it, without having to check ID. Not a good move in my opinion. Don’t be surprised if the Democrats hire slight-of-hand magicians to stuff these boxes with liberal unverified ballots.

  13. While millions of Americans thrive from living here in the United States, we have the right to DEMAND THAT ELECTIONS BE HELD COMPLETELY HONESTLY ! ! ! ! THAT EVERY MEANS AVAILABLE BE IMPLEMENTED TO INSURE THAT THIS HAPPENS ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! OUR FUTURE DEPENDS ON THIS HAPPENING ! !

  14. WHY ARE YOU POLICERS ERASING COMMENTS??? ISNT THIS THE USA????? AM I NOW IN THE SOVIET UNION???? YOU WORD POLICE ARE A LAUGH,BUT I EXPECT AS MUCH FROM THE NEW AMERIKKKKKKA NOW ERASE THIS

  15. IS THERE STILL AN (AMERICA)???
    MANY PEOPLE ARE KNEELING TO (COMMUNIST) SLAVERY.
    THE LEADING DEMOCRATS (IN E-MAIL) STATED THEY ARE ENDING DEMOCRATIC RULES.
    IS THIS A BAD ILLEGAL DEED???
    HOW CAN WE KNOW WHO TO VOTE FOR??? AFTER ELECTION WILL THEY SUPPORT THE COMMUNISTS???
    WITH MEMORIES OF (VEIT NAM) & KOREA.
    OLD SOLDIER
    AM I STILL (AMERICAN)???

  16. What is it about voting that requires blacks to have a problem which doesn’t seem to affect any other race? They can’t get to the polls? I call BS on that. They can get anywhere on God’s green earth that they want or need to go but are unable to get to a polling place.. Don’t have or can’t get ID?? I call BS on that too. Practically everything they do and everywhere they go there is a good chance they have to show ID, but suddenly ID should not be required to vote because it’s just to hard for them to get. NO MORE DROP BOXES. NO MORE EARLY VOTING UNLESS YOU ARE IN THE MILITARY. STOP THIS VOTER FRAUD. VOTER FRAUD IS HOW WE ENDED UP WITH BIDEN/HARRIS. BTW… AMERICAN DIGEST.. If you delete this comment like you do other of my comments i will unscribe and look at you as a leftist muzzle operation.

  17. Agree with all posts! Voter I.d. Is a MUST! Racist abrams is using the “ race card” the demonrats are so fond of to skew our elections! Voter I.d. Does NOT disenfranchise anyone, other than illegals who have NO voter rights! Abrams should be arrested for vote tampering!

  18. Every state should be in on this action !!! Isn’t it time that Americans have their say as who there elected officials are ??? Why is this so hard to understand – Americans are the voters- or so I have been taught at home and in school !!! An individual has to have a drivers license to drive, a home – a title, a social security card, etc. Why is it so hard to have registered and valid voters on-board ??? Is this a standard in America to lie, cheat, and steal to get their way – I’ve always been taught that hard work pays off – guess me teachings have been all wrong !!!

  19. Why are the Democrat’s so against voter ID . Is because they fear real legal voting? I need a answer from them ,how about you?

  20. What i don’t understood is in reality how you’re no longer really a lot more well-appreciated than you might be now. You are so intelligent. You recognize therefore significantly in the case of this subject, produced me in my opinion imagine it from numerous various angles. Its like women and men don’t seem to be fascinated except it is one thing to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. Always deal with it up!
