    "The bill, which also famously prohibits the distribution of food and water for voters waiting in line..."

    I believe “poll officers” can give voters refreshments as long as they are not provided by political interest groups.

    MLB must be as misinformed as the NFL.

    "Can" is very different from "shall", especially when you're prohibiting an already existent practice.

    And it's fairly important to remember the conditions that necessitated the practice in the first place.

    You mean the 8 hour lines in black neighborhood?  Thank you MLB for standing against the racists.

    Yank the Braves franchise out of Georgia so the voters down there don’t have to pay for a new stadium every 20 years.

    Rather than restrict the amount of time voters have to get to the polls, the legislation expands it during the early voting period. Every county is now required to offer Saturday voting and is also given the option to allow Sunday voting.

    Election workers, not political groups, can continue set up food and water stations at the polls, so long as they remain unmanned.

    Any registered voter requesting an absentee ballot will, in any future election, need to write his or her driver’s license or state ID number on the application in order to obtain a ballot.

    Voting rights advocates have long argued that any ID requirements associated with voting disproportionately affect people of color and low-income communities. Georgia, however, offers a free state ID that can be used to request ballots.

    And ...63% of Blacks support the photo ID requirement (AJC Poll).

    Sadly, this thread will be locked or deleted. It was respectful and insightful until Dick's comment.
