Poll shows deep divisions over Georgia voting law
The University of Georgia released a poll concerning the state’s controversial new voting law. The poll suggests steep partisan disagreements over many provisions, but also some ideological overlap. While Republican and Democratic voters largely disagreed about whether a driver’s license or equivalent ID should be required for absentee voting, voters of both parties supported early voting opportunities. Additionally, a majority of those polled were opposed to the new policy forbidding the service of food and drink to voters who are waiting in line.
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.
