The Special Committee on Election Security this week revisited HB270 after minor revisions that still dramatically shorten the time within which Georgians can request an absentee ballot, and it doesn’t have provisions for last minute emergencies. This bill has been flagged by numerous organizations as troublesome. Please contact your State Reps to vote NO on HB270.
GOP actions to restrict access to the ballot box are getting flagged as troublesome by National Media. The bills assigned to this committee can be found at this link (click here), under the “Assigned Legislation” section. It is important that we closely follow the actions of this committee and any attacks on our election systems. Please continue to email and call the legislators on the House Special Committee as well as the Senate Ethics Committee to let them know how you feel about the election bills. We will continue to work closely with House Democratic leadership to fight bills that seek to suppress the vote.
