Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia enacts new election legislation

The new legislation signed by Governor Brian Kemp in Georgia alters election laws ahead of the 2024 presidential election, defining probable causes for removing voters from rolls when challenged. Activists have questioned over 100,000 voters in recent years, citing duplicate records or out-of-state moves. The bill identifies various reasons for removing voters, including evidence of voting elsewhere or a nonresidential address. Supporters believe the changes will make challenges more difficult, but opponents argue it could lead to baseless attacks and disenfranchise voters. The bill also introduces changes regarding homeless voters and ballot access for political parties. Critics, including groups like Fair Fight Action and the ACLU, have condemned the bill as voter suppression and have vowed legal action, while the governor vetoed a separate bill banning political contributions from foreign nationals.
