Georgia Begins the Work to Ensure Election Integrity


Georgia Democrats, however, have a very different outlook. Democrats in the Georgia Senate voted against Walker’s legislation; they also argued that requiring absentee voters to submit picture ID is a form of racism, disenfranchisement, and voter suppression.

These are common left-wing talking points, though; Democrats have consistently argued that photo ID requirements for any form of voting are meant to drive down the number of voters.

Republicans in Georgia are largely supportive of Walker’s legislation, however. Right-wingers across the nation have also suggested that photo ID requirements for absentee voting ought to be mandatory nationwide.

The next step

Since the Georgia Senate voted, it’s now up to the Georgia House of Representatives to vote on Walker’s sponsored bill.

The work to guarantee the security of elections in Georgia comes at a pivotal moment. Georgians have two critical elections coming up; these elections include the 2022 gubernatorial race and the race for the Senate seat presently occupied by Democrat Raphael Warnock.
