Georgia has allowed no-excuse absentee voting for all elections since 2005. It was part of a voting bill passed that year by the Republican-controlled legislature and signed into law by the Republican Governor, Sonny Perdue.

It's becoming quite clear that the work of Popular Information is among the highest quality and MOST IMPORTANT journalism being done in these times. Thank you Judd.
Great job, Judd. The GOP does not play fair in GA or anywhere else. The voting people of GA seem asleep at the wheel, but will they step up and Sue over these bills? Are they Constitutional? These new bills seem like Jim Crow dressed in more modern wording to me, but same intention. 2022 looms large for all of us.
One cannot support democracy, and also suppress the vote. The very tenets of democracy demand universal participation. Furthermore, the heart & soul of America is in the People's God-given, inalienable rights, including the right to vote for our governmental representatives. Yet, the GOP consistently attacks our right to vote from every conceivable angle.
Therefore, the GOP is anti-American.
Best title ever! Great reporting. Thank you
Thank you for staying the course on this very important topic. Your dedication to the task is admirable and appreciated.
Thanks, as always, Judd, for helping to hold corporate America accountable - and for outing the *!&@$ machinations of the Republican party.
I’ll merely echo the sentiments of congratulations and thanks. You and your team are doing crucial work that I am honored to support.
“The White to Vote”. Yes, that about covers it. Thanks Judd, for continuing to do such a great job!
I'm constantly amazed at how much [we let] the Republicans lie and cheat and how they are FOR something as long as it stops certain voters from voting. It's not democracy.
Welcome back, Jim Crow............
This is MASSIVE. I'm glad they're using your newsletter (website). You've done incredible work.
thank you for this and all you put out there I m spreading the word, wherever I can, FB, twitter, friends family. Even if we can t avoid buying all their products we can make it known we are aware of this double dealing of the corporations, I know they give to both parties to spread their influence we need to make sure they know we will keep it in mind.
Thanks Judd, Great Information!!
Typical liars and hypocrites. How anyone could possibly be a republican is astounding. They don't even hide their racism. Every bill introduced is inherently racist and garners complete support from republicans. Absolutely disgusting.
