At stake in this decision, as in all other election-related questions, is the accuracy of election results in determining our leadership. Voter ID laws would harm Democratic voters more than Republicans who are more likely to already have ID. The latest news on this front comes from an article at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution written by Mark Niesse. Take a look at this excerpt:
Georgia voters would be required to make copies of their photo ID and mail them to election officials twice before being allowed to cast an absentee ballot, according to a bill introduced Wednesday. The legislation, Senate Bill 29, would create a photo ID requirement for voting outside of polling places in Georgia. Voters would need to submit ID both when applying for absentee ballots and when returning them.
The bill is the first major proposal to limit absentee voting after Republican Donald Trump lost to Democrat Joe Biden in last year’s presidential election. State and local election officials have said there’s little indication of fraud besides isolated cases.
