Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) has signed an election bill that strengthens election integrity after the Peach state was the site of several allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 election.
This victory by Republicans in Georgia reverses the gains that Democrats have made in trying to compromise our election security in the name of voter access.
The Democrat party spent the entirety of the 2020 election cycle trying to break down every security measure and claimed that they were doing it to ensure all Americans had access to voting. The reality is that Democrats very well could have compromised our elections and possibly even skewed results in several races.
The bill signed by Governor Kemp will now require voters requesting absentee ballots to provide a driver’s license or state-issued ID card number to ensure that there is no abuse of absentee ballots.
Democrats have framed voter ID requirements as racist even though an ID is required for nearly every official function and many daily activities. Americans are required to present ID when purchasing alcohol, and it is only reasonable that they also provide ID when participating in our elections.
This victory in Georgia is only the first of many, and there is still a lot of work to be done. Republicans nationwide need to ensure that future elections are run fairly and securely. The question marks that plagued the 2020 election cycle must be addressed before the next election cycle.
