Chris Appleton comments on Georgia’s now (anti-)voting law. An excerpt:
It was June 9, 2020 that I watched the Georgia election process melt down — a day of embarrassment for our state. I saw in my own community long lines in the hot Georgia sun which drove potential voters away. Our Southeast Atlanta neighbors stood in line up to six hours waiting to vote. Rather than let voters wait in misery — parched, hungry, cranky — I joined my neighbor John Gibson as we brought fresh baked cookies, bottled water, and chairs for people to sit in. Rather than let the hot, sweaty, bureaucratic mess push away potential voters, we made sure folks were comfortable and able to fulfill their civic duty.
What we did on that day will now be illegal if these new election rules stay in place.
