Atlanta, GA – A Georgia lawmaker who was arrested after she tried to interrupt GOP Governor Brian Kemp’s signing of controversial a new voting law could be facing eight years in prison.
Kemp signed Georgia Senate Bill 202 into law on March 25 in a ceremony with press and supporters in attendance, WXIA reported.
Opponents of the legislation have complained that it is an attempt to suppress minority votes.
SB 202 requires an ID number, such as a driver’s license, to apply for an absentee ballot, WXIA reported.
The legislation also so cuts off absentee ballot applications 11 days prior to the election, limits the number of absentee ballot drop boxes, and allows the state to take control of what it calls “underperforming” local election systems.
