What to know about Georgia’s new voting restrictions

by The 100 Companies

On March 25, Governor Brian Kemp signed SB 202, making sweeping changes to Georgia’s election law in response to the 2020 election. Several of its key points have raised concern:

• Driver’s license numbers or other documentation required to check identity, replacing signature matching processes, for absentee ballots. 

• As little as one week allowed for early voting before runoffs, down from three weeks.

• Criminalize “line warming” practice where volunteers hand out food and water to voters in long lines.

• Limit access to ballot dropboxes while codifying them into law.

• Ban the use of provisional ballots for most cases of out-of-precinct voting.
