This really interesting article is by Jonathan Bernstein in Bloomberg Opinion:
Over the weekend, Topic One still seemed to be the recently passed, and much debated, Georgia election law. So let’s get into it.
GPB’s Stephen Fowler and Nick Corasaniti and Reid J. Epstein in the New York Times each have comprehensive examinations of what the new law would do. It’s … complicated. Some of the provisions are good-government updates of existing law. Others make it on balance harder to use absentee ballots and (perhaps) to vote early in person. Parts of the law appear to be targeted, at least symbolically, at the various things that former President Donald Trump and other Republicans falsely claimed cost them the 2020 election. And then there are provisions that appear to make it easier for the majority party in the state to simply overturn the actual election outcome.
How can we analyze such a sprawling measure — especially since it’s hard to know how much of it will eventually be implemented?
