Atlanta mayor issues executive order against Georgia’s new voting law
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms has issued an executive order designed to reduce the impact of Georgia’s new voting law on voters of color. The order plans to find ways to expand access to the ballot box for Atlanta voters, including training city staff on voter registration, how to obtain required identification, and general information concerning early, absentee, and in-person voting.
Young adults will be the nation’s largest voting bloc in the upcoming election and the National Voter Education Week plans to equip them with the tools and information they need to cast a ballot this fall.
A voting initiative started by several Black athletes and artists combatting systemic and racist voter suppression. This initiative aims at educating, energizing, and protecting the Black community’s right to vote.
