Last year, Republican lawmakers in Georgia passed much-needed voting reform. Democrats flipped their lids.
Joe Biden even claimed the laws—which aimed to prevent fraud while expanding voting hours—were “Jim Crow 2.0.” That lie triggered numerous companies to boycott the state.
Now, the first elections are being held since the law was passed. As it turns out, turnout is hitting record highs.
From Fox News:
Democrats, corporations and the liberal media repeatedly decried Georgia’s Republican-passed Election Integrity Act as the next Jim Crow, but the Peach State is now seeing record-breaking turnout for early voting ahead of Tuesday’s primary.
According to the office of Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, there have been nearly 800,000 ballots cast by Georgians as of Friday, a number three times that of 2018 and significantly higher than 2020, an election year when voting typically increases.
Would you look at that? Democrats were wrong again.
Joe Biden and Democrats in the media claimed Georgia’s new voting laws would deny people the right to vote. All because it clamped down on mail-in ballots and suspicious drop boxes.
None of that was true if they bothered to read the legislation. But facts never get in the way of a Democrat’s ranting.
As it turns out, early voting has reached record highs in the days before the state’s upcoming primaries. There have been almost 800,000 ballots cast before today’s voting day.
That is higher than 2020, which was a presidential election.
How can that be, if the Republican-supported election law was “Jim Crow 2.0”?
It’s pretty despicable that Democrats get away with spreading this. Nothing within the election law passed last year prohibited citizens from lawfully voting.
In fact, the law made it safer and easier for legal citizens to vote and much harder for fraudsters and non-eligible people (meaning: border jumpers) from voting.
Were Democrats just upset that they couldn’t take advantage of gaps in voting anymore?
Well, that’s not for us to say. But we know that what they said about Georgia’s voting law was a lie.
People are voting. Nobody is being denied their rights. And Democrats are proven wrong again.
- Early voting for the GA primaries hit record highs.
- This contradicts the left’s claim that the state’s new voting law would suppress voters.
- Joe Biden himself claimed the law was “Jim Crow 2.0”.
