    You have more voting rights in Georgia than you do Delaware fact check that

      @Bruh x100 that’s because their was a pandemic. They have way more than they did 2 years ago

    • Trent Bonebrake | April 6, 2021 at 10:24 PM | Reply

      @Bruh x100 that is 150’ from the building and only from certain organizations from distributing food and drink. It is law in majority of states to protect the vote

    • Trent Bonebrake | April 6, 2021 at 10:28 PM | Reply

      @Bruh x100 that’s why they increased early voting days and more voting machines as well as locations

      Did you read the law or are you relying on the media to tell you what you want to hear. The law basically requires the state to monitor polling locations to see if any have lines longer than an hour, or still have voters waiting in line for more than an hour after polls were supposed to close. In those cases, the state is required to either form new precinct locations to ease the strain or beef up the existing polling locations’ capacities to handle large numbers of voters. This applies specifically to populous precincts, mostly in urban areas.

      Watch “Senator Tom cotton on growing corporate backlash on CNBC” see if that changes you opinion.

    You’re mistaking verification as limitation. But what’s a little misinformation between friends?

    • Garrett Grant | April 5, 2021 at 5:33 PM | Reply

      Voter Fraud is NOT a thing. You’re verifying against a problem that doesn’t exist. But what’s a little right-wing misinformation in the comment section?

    • CasinoVa Beach | April 5, 2021 at 6:11 PM | Reply

      @Garrett Grant 4,500 ballots from one address isn’t voter fraud? Ha! Here’s your helmet and you 🚌 you’ll notice that it’s quite short.

      Minor technicality eh nothing big. Lol

  3. Voter ID should not be an argument. It should simply be law.

      @evan doe Gospel truth.

      @michelle grinder What? I have a desk in my kitchen, but I don’t sit at it much any more. I moved my computer to the living room, where there’s room for a larger monitor so I can see the screen better. This thread wasn’t strictly about voting in Georgia, it was about whether or not there should be a voter ID law. How would I know what hospitals do? I’ve been alive for almost seven decades. I was born in a hospital. I gave birth to my own children in a hospital. My mother worked in a hospital. My father died in a hospital. My husband died in a hospital. I’ve been a healthcare surrogate for four different people over the years. One of my closest friends is a nurse at Martin Memorial. Who said I won’t leave my house? I go to church, the grocery store, and the bank. That’s about it. Why would I go to Georgia to vote when I live in Florida, am registered to vote in Florida, and have my ballot sent to my house?

      @michelle grinder Whining you want first and last word? You are just moving the goalposts and never satified with anything. (Must have a difficult time finding romantic partners) Tell you what, seeing how you cant be believed when you say you will go away, (or much atvall for that matter) and the idea of consequences for bad actions definitely eludes you, it is past time i stopped arguing with the perveiable pigeon on the chess board, hope you find enjoyment in your sad, lonely, troll existence. Auf Wiedersehen.

  4. IF voting structures are more limited than those to pay taxes❓=TAXATION WOIT REPRESENTATION ☠️✅

    NEW YORK HAS STRICTER VOTING LAWS THAN GEORGIA

    • Then let’s change that !

    • ORANGE GENERAL | April 5, 2021 at 12:10 PM | Reply

      @Perrye Golson THERE IS NO NEED AT ALL FOR BALLOT BOXES. THE POSTAL SYSTEM IS SUFFICIENT. COUNTIES HAVE THE OPTION TO EXTEND THE EARLY VOTING HOURS TO 7 PM. FORGED ID WOULD BE CAUGHT BY ACCESS TO THE DATA. AND THE U.S. CONSTITUTION GIVES PLENARY POWER TO THE STATE LEGISLATURES, NOT THE SECRETARY OF STATE.

    • TRUTH Matters | April 5, 2021 at 12:29 PM | Reply

      @ORANGE GENERAL you are spot on….. I’ll bet you didn’t google all of the false narrative that seems to have seeped in here. LOL sometimes getting truthful information is not as important to some people as simply swallowing all of the race baiting lies. It’s an unfortunate day and age that all of those lies go unchecked and there is zero search for truth. This law is not racist or discriminatory.

    • Officer Brian Siknick died on Jan 7 – nearly 3 months ago.

      The MSM, FBI and Dems said it was from being beaten by a fire extinguisher by Trump supporters – @RevolverNews used video to prove that was a lie.

      Next they said he was killed by bear spray – again Revolver News used video to show that was ALSO a lie.

      They’re still spinning that narrative several months later.

      A Nation of Islam supporter rammed the WH gate last week and murdered a police officer – the media has already stopped talking about it.

      Do you see it yet?

      @Perrye Golson lol they didn’t even match the signatures during the election. They separated and threw them out.

    Allow the states to conduct elections independently, but under basic federal laws. Apply the law to ALL states, not just one or the other political party.

  8. Nobody remembers Erica Thomas’s racist hoax? Thought she was done after that

      @Daves Ontherocks Did you know that CHina Joe gave the eulogy for a KKK member? Kamala said Joe is a racist. HE is on video for decades saying blatantly obvious racist things and policies. But they won’t tell ya that.

      Do they? Is Delta manning the TSA checkpoints now? I’ve always had to show an ID going through security (where TSA employees are checking ID’s), but never when actually boarding the plane (where Delta employees are checking the ticket).

    • Jesse Link 4 doesn't drink Coke | April 5, 2021 at 12:31 PM | Reply

      @Cowboy Curtis I flew with with delta and kept the blanket, was a intercontinental flight, horrible airplane service btw. Anyways yes they check your ID at the desk and make sure your photo matches the passport photo before you can board.

    • Cowboy Curtis | April 5, 2021 at 12:48 PM | Reply

      @Jesse Link 4 doesn’t drink Coke Ah, maybe different with international flights where passports are needed. I’ve only ever flown with them within the US, and I’ve never had to go to the desk for anything (always check myself in and only ever needed a carry-on, no checked bags).

    • Jesse Link 4 doesn't drink Coke | April 5, 2021 at 12:58 PM | Reply

      @Cowboy Curtis yeah maybe so. I flew back with them, can’t remember if I flew with them other than that. Honestly I think looking at a state issue ID is important. I also only want IRL voting and no internet voting. Like a real country. Having traveled a lot, America is honestly too big. Each state should be free to do what they want and only come together if we’re attacked.

    Georgia State Election Board refers 98 voter fraud cases to state attorney general

    The cases date as far back as 2014 and include accusations of double voting in the 2016 presidential election.

    Here in Ireland ID is required when voting, to keep it safe and secure.
    It doesn’t infringe on our rights 🇨🇮

  13. Reminder: you need an I.D. to get both Covid test and vaccination.

      @Tod Brown Nope, unlike your side of the world, it’s online and show up. So I did. No ID at all. Keep it up, there is a reason why I live in the 5th largest economy on the planet.

    A ID doesn’t care what color you are. In fact it give you a independent identity. Independent meaning, singular. One single vote for one single person.
