Georgia Senate votes to eliminate no-excuse absentee voting
The Georgia Senate voted to restrict absentee voting to those who are at least 65 years old, have a physical disability, or are out of town. They also voted to require Georgians to provide a driver’s license number, state ID, or other identification. The bill passed on a party-line vote, with Republicans supporting and Democrats opposing the measure.
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.
