‘Reprehensible Power Grab’: Outrage as Georgia House Passes GOP Bill Restricting Voting Rights

Alexander's remarks were echoed by Aklima Khondoker, Georgia state director at the advocacy group All Voting is Local, who said in a statement that "these new bills are a reprehensible power grab that were rushed through committee and never intended to solve the real issues that plagued our elections like long lines, machine malfunctions, and staffing scarcities."

"Georgia voters turned out in November and January, making their voices heard through ballot drop boxes, expanded absentee voting, and increased early voting hours," added Khondoker. "That increased access empowered voters to change Georgia's political landscape, and now, the legislature is trying to ensure it never happens again. Georgians must have the freedom to vote in the way that works best for them."

“We should be more inclusive rather than less inclusive,” said Alex Gulotta of All Voting is Local said, “but that’s what it came down to today. How much more discrimination will we tolerate? How much discrimination will the courts allow us to tolerate.”

"Ninety-six percent of non-native American people live on a postal route, but only 26% of Native Americans do. If people have less access to mail, then getting that ballot back is a big deal," said Alex Gulotta, an Arizona voting rights advocate. "It would make you jump through a bunch of hoops to be able to cast a mail-in ballot."
