Georgia Republicans in sweeping new effort to make it harder to vote
Bill that would restrict early voting on Sundays denounced as ‘concerted effort to suppress the votes of Black Georgians’
HOW MANY TIMES DO WE HAVE HAVE TO HEARD THIS CANARD? WHERE ARE THOSE WHO FAILED TO CAST A VOTE? SHOW THEM TO US.
THE EXTENDED DEADLINE GIVES THEM TIME TO ROUND UP THE FICTITIOUS, DEAD, ILLEGAL OUT OF STATE VOTER FOR THE SOUL PURPOSE TO FIND A SURROGATE VOTER.
Georgia Republicans File Sweeping Elections Bill To Limit Early And Absentee Voting. Only a small subset of Georgians would be eligible to vote absentee by mail, and those that do qualify would have to submit some sort of photo ID with their application either online or on paper. They would not be allowed to get an application from outside groups, and could only return ballots through the mail or deliver in person to the county elections office. If someone moves to Georgia, or moves within the state, they would have to remember to opt in to having the Department of Driver Services update their voter registration, and if they relocate to Georgia after a November general election they could not participate in the runoff.

ATLANTA — Republican state senators have rolled out a legislative package aimed at overhauling Georgia’s election laws by limiting who can vote by mail, outlining how to prove identification and outlawing absentee-ballot drop boxes.
The eight bills, filed late Monday by top Senate Republican leaders, mark the most sweeping attempt to change local voting laws after the 2020 election cycle stirred mistrust among many conservative Georgians over the state’s election integrity.
Florida Republicans want to impose new voting restrictions. They’re not the only
Gov. Ron DeSantis’s plan to make it harder to vote by mail, briefly explained.
At a news conference in Palm Beach on Friday, DeSantis, a Republican, announced a proposed slate of new voting restrictions that would make it more difficult for voters to receive and return mail-in ballots in future Florida elections.
In doing so, he joined a wave of state and local officials who have worked in the months since the 2020 general election to introduce new voting restrictions, arguing these policies will make voting more secure.
Specifically, DeSantis called on the Florida legislature to address “ballot harvesting” (when mail-in ballots are collected for delivery at a drop-off location) and ballot drop boxes, to ban mailing out ballots to voters who haven’t requested one, and to tighten the rules around requesting a ballot so that requests must be made every election year.
Currently, a request for a vote-by-mail ballot is valid for two general election cycles, according to the Florida ACLU; DeSantis’s proposed change would mean that voters have to do so more frequently, potentially raising the logistical barriers to voting by mail.
DeSantis also lauded Florida’s voting system in his speech, arguing the state had the most “transparent and efficient election anywhere in the country,” and pointing out that Florida — which went for former President Donald Trump in November — counted ballots far more quickly than some states. But he claimed the new measures are necessary in order to ensure election integrity.
“We need to make sure that we continue to stay ahead of the curve,” DeSantis said Friday. “We need to make sure that our citizens have confidence in the elections.”
Types of Voter Fraud – How the Problem is Solved
Types of voter fraud include intimidation, vote buying, misinformation, misleading / confusing ballot papers, ballot stuffing, incorrect recording of votes, misuses of proxy votes, destruction / invalidation of ballots, and tampering with electronic voting machines.
- In order to obtain a “free ID” they need a certified copy of a birth certificate which costs from $10 to $45 depending on the state, a passport which costs $85, and certified naturalization papers which cost $19.95. As an added catch-22 obtaining a certified copy of your birth certificate usually requires a government-issued ID.
- The “free IDs” could cost tax payers millions.
So make no mistake here, voting fraud does exist. As Federal procedures require a State approved driver license to book and embark on an airline in the United States as of October 1, 2021 (delayed one year from 2020).
Ok, so what is the solution? Any person who is eligible to vote should be able to do so. An eligible person should apply in person for a birth certificate at the appropriate department of Vital Statistics, if they can’t physically be there, a Zoom video or equivalent will do. Of course it must be verifiable, via a passport or other government documentation such as FBI confirmed fingerprints, military identification etc. A certified birth certificate will then be issued free of charge. However, to reimburse the locality, the appropriate department would then send a certified list of the applicants to the Department of Homeland Security with their social security numbers for reimbursement. That will solve the monetary and verification problem once and for all. Note that the departments involved must be allowed access at the point of application SS verification service.
The Social Security Number Verification Service – This free online service allows registered users to verify that the names and Social Security numbers of hired employees match Social Security’s records.
And those who need certified naturalization papers will apply to the Federal Government Agency that initially certified the individual, most likely Immigration and Naturalization. This is simple as it gets. No money to change hands in this instance. All the person has to do is provide proper documentation, such as a Birth Certificate identifying the individual. So where is the problem? The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, will provide Certified True Copies and return these along with the supplied documentation to the requester.
