What’s new in Georgia’s new voter ID law?
The law also does away with the signature-matching system Georgia used to use to check the identities of absentee voters. Instead, voters will have to provide their Georgia driver’s license number, the number on their state identification card, or the last four digits of their Social Security number.
How many people voted early in Georgia in 2020?
Nearly 2.7 million Georgians voted early during the 2020 general election and the new law will offer more opportunities for early voting in most of Georgia’s counties. There will be at least 17 days of early voting, starting on the Monday that is 22 days before Election Day until the Friday before an election.
What are the new laws for absentee ballots in Georgia?
The new law requires each Georgia county to have a minimum of one drop box for absentee ballots. In 2020, when drop boxes were used for the first time in Georgia, the boxes were authorized by special pandemic-related rules rather than by long-term legislation.
Should black voters have access to drop boxes in Georgia?
Voting advocates argue that Black voters are more likely to work multiple jobs than Georgians of other races and limiting their access to drop boxes closes off yet another avenue to the franchise. The law says any Georgian can challenge the voting eligibility of an unlimited number of voters.
