Gov. Brian Kemp signed an election bill requiring voters to submit identification to vote by mail. If Georgians choose to use their driver’s license, they must provide the correct driver’s license number — or their ballots will be rejected.
Democrats have launched a campaign to educate residents on the correct DL number to provide when submitting their absentee ballots.
Democrats are outraged over Kemp’s new election law, which closes a loophole that allowed out-of-towners to submit ballots without providing an ID.
Lawmakers argue the new law is voter suppression. They say the law puts Black people at a disadvantage because they don’t know how to apply for IDs.
Critics say the Democrat’s argument against voter ID boils down to insulting the intelligence of black people.
