Family members of victims hold meetings on Capitol Hill to advance police reform (RS.C.) said in an interview that he agreed to a provision in a GOP-backed electoral law in Georgia designed to prevent non-polling officers from providing food or water to voters waiting in long lines to vote give. “Doesn’t make a lot of sense. ”

The moment came during Graham’s recent interview on Fox News Sunday when he was pressured by the host Chris WallaceChristopher (Chris) WallaceRepublicans Hammer Biden On Infrastructure As Administration Defends Plan GOP Senator: Two Sides “Far Apart” On Infrastructure Compromise Biden’s economic advisor formulates the infrastructure plan as a necessary investment MORE on laws passed by Georgia Gov.

“All right, let’s look at some regulations in Georgia and these are specific that a lot of people have heartburn about, Senator. This would limit the number and location of Dropboxes, ”Wallace told Graham on Sunday.

“Fine,” said Graham.

“It allows counties to cancel the early voting at 5:00 p.m. before many working people can get out and vote. This is, in my opinion, the greatest excitement that forbids it and that makes it a crime. Give food or drink to the voters in line, ”Wallace continued.

“Senator, why on earth, when Americans are ready to wait hours for the vote, would you make it a crime for the people to come and give them a bottle of water?” Wallace then asked.

“All I can say is that it doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. I agree with you, ”said Graham.

Georgian law would allow election workers to bring a cup of water to someone in line, but would prohibit other people from doing so in order to end the campaign.

The provision is one of several changes that Republican-backed legislation seeks to make to the state vote.

“The law would also add more identification requirements for nationals absent from the state, a practice long favored by Republicans after a record absentee vote in the previous presidential election.

If passed, Georgia voters would need to present a driver’s license or state identification number in order to vote absent. The electoral authorities previously used a signature matching process for verification of the ballot papers. “

In 2020, Georgia flipped blue for the first time since 1992. In January, the Democrats won two runoff elections for the US Senate, in which the Democrats won a majority.

The bill is being passed because the Republican-led Georgian legislature has tabled or put forward a number of electoral bills in recent months that contain provisions that would restrict voter access.

Republicans have claimed the legislation is necessary to increase electoral security and public confidence in the elections in Georgia.

Democrats and advocates of voting rights have argued that the legislation would make it harder for people, especially blacks, to vote, and that the measures would be in response to the party’s victories in the state in the November presidential election and the Senate runoff in the January.

Many proponents have said that legislation in Georgia increases the use of Congress to pass laws with provisions aimed at widening access to voting like HR 1.

Republicans argue that this would federalize the elections and take too much control from the states.

Instead, during his Sunday appearance, Graham urged those upset about Georgia electoral laws to “bring their challenges to justice and stop them”.

“But what they are doing with HR 1 is to destroy a state’s ability to hold elections, abolish the idea of ​​voters, change the federal election commission to become partisan, and institutionalize national voting,” he argued and argued with the measure. would be a disaster for our elections. “

UPDATE: In an earlier version of this article, the electoral law that Kemp signed last week was incorrectly stated. A voter ID request for postal voting is created with the invoice.
