Georgia House Passes Massive Election Reform Bill

March 1, 2021

ATLANTA — A sweeping bill that restricts ballot drop boxes, requires ID for absentee voting and limits weekend early voting days has passed the Georgia House.

House Bill 531 passed 97-72, straight down party lines. The House took up the controversial bill right after lunch Monday.

This bill would do a number of things like reduce the number of early voting days, require an ID to apply for an absentee ballot and would make it a misdemeanor to give voters food or drink in the voting line if they’re within 150 feet of a polling place.

Democrats insist the bill is nothing more than voter suppression created by Republicans.

“HB 531 is designed to begin to bring back the confidence of our voters back into our election system,” said state Rep. Barry Fleming, R-Harlem.

The bill now advances to the state Senate for consideration.

  1. If you need an ID to get food stamps, heating assistance, and all other forms for welfare……WHY NOT VOTER ID. EVERY STATE IN THIS COUNTRY OFFERS A PHOTO ID. WHY NOT VOTER ID. ALL LEGAL STATE GIVE AWAYS NEED PROOF OF ID. WHY NOT GET ONE OR GIVE ME A VALID REASON WHY YOU WON’T

  2. Sooooo WEAK! No VOTER ID, no mandatory signature verification, no citizenship proof, no extended election weeks, it’s all smoke and mirrors and crap.

Tell the Wiz what you think!
