Georgia’s Board of Elections is trying to sneak through a new rule that could block new registrations before the Senate runoff to people who don’t have a car registered in the state.
VOTERS ARE BEING PURGED IN GEORGIA.
This should be a MUCH bigger story.pic.twitter.com/PittxQuctu

This knocks out students and lower income urban voters (i.e. Black Atlantans) without cars. Of course, you can’t force people to buy a car in order to vote. The voters will be allowed on the rolls after a hearing, which will of course be after the January 5 election.
🚨🚨🚨RT EMERGENCY. If you live in Georgia, especially if you are an African American woman, CHECK YOUR VOTER REGISTRATION. They are purging registrations of ppl (especially women of color) THAT VOTED IN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. CHECK YOUR REGISTRATION NOW!!!

The GOP Secretary of State’s excuse? To prevent voter fraud. Brad Raffensperger claims people from out of state will be driving into Georgia to register to vote in the runoff.

Our team in Georgia contacted Raffensperger’s office and asked if they’ve encountered a single fraudulent out-of-state voter. So far, we’ve had no answer.
We will expose it. We will fight it.
