The Washington Post admitted this week that early voting in Georgia is surging ahead of the 2022 midterms despite claiming the state’s new laws were “racist’ and equivalent to “voter suppression.”
“But after three weeks of early voting ahead of Tuesday’s primary, record-breaking turnout is undercutting predictions that the Georgia Election Integrity Act of 2021 would lead to a falloff in voting.By the end of Friday, the final day of early in-person voting, nearly 800,000 Georgians had cast ballots — more than three times the number in 2018, and higher even than in 2020, a presidential year,” admits the Washington Post.
Major League Baseball withdrew its All-Star Game from Atlanta over the new voting laws.
“Abrams and President Biden lied to the people of Georgia and the country for political gain,” Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger (R) said. “From day one, I said that Georgia’s election law balanced security and access, and the facts have proved me right.”
“The law on the whole makes voting needlessly harder, and with no sound policy rationale,” wrote the Washington Post Editorial Board in April 2021. “Republicans are twisting the rules to discourage Democratic voters from casting ballots.”
