A day late and a dollar short: Georgia Governor Brian Kemp announced that photo identification requirements for absentee ballots will be “front and center” this year.
I guess it’s better late than never, eh?
“It’s a simple way to make sure that type of voting is further secured, and it’s a good first place to start,” Kemp said. “It’s completely reasonable in this day and time, and in light of what’s going on, it would give all voters peace of mind and wouldn’t be restrictive.”
Where was that during the 2020 presidential election and the 2021 Senate runoff election earlier this month?? Please.
Atlanta Journal reports:
In an interview, the Republican said he is “reserving judgment” on a series of proposals that seek to end at-will absentee voting, ban ballot drop boxes and restrict state officials or outside groups from sending out absentee ballot applications.
But Kemp said he unequivocally supported measures to tighten voter ID laws for mail-in ballots, which Republicans have targeted after record turnout helped Joe Biden capture Georgia, snapping 24 years of GOP presidential wins, and Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock swept Senate runoffs.
He’s found common cause with Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who wants to eliminate a voter’s signatures as the main verification method for an absentee ballot and replace it with options that could include requiring a voter to submit a copy of his or her driver’s license or an ID number with the ballot.
It only makes sense. Show your ID to prove you are who you say you are, and then vote. It’s that easy.
