Democrats have made repeated claims of voter suppression, but their claims are being proven false by record-setting turnouts in the Georgia mid-terms.
Currently, Georgia voter turnout is 304,784 larger than those who voted early in person during the 2018 midterm election.
"Through Thursday, the state has seen 573,577 voters cast their ballots. That number includes 519,372 Georgians who voted early in person and 54,205 who returned absentee ballots," according JustTheNews.
"The number is less than the 574,800 who voted early in person during the 2020 presidential election but more than the 304,784 who voted early in person during the 2018 midterm election, reported JustTheNews.
"Counties have done a tremendous effort in getting their information online and on the airwaves so that voters understand the opportunities in front of them to cast their ballot safely and securely – and most importantly – easily," said Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.
"Georgia Democrats have criticized the state's new voting law, Senate Bill 202, the Election Integrity Act, which lawmakers passed in 2021," according to JustTheNews.
Critics of the measure say the passing of the new law has allowed "mass voter eligibility challenges" that target minority voters.
"SB 202 is empowering anti-voter vigilantes who are determined to disenfranchise Georgia voters, especially young voters and voters of color," said Democratic Representative Bee Nguyen, nominee for Secretary of State.
