Right now the big thing is Brad Raffensberger's push to make voting in Georgia "for citizens only".


You have to be a citizen to vote in federal elections, full stop.

But legal permanent residents (Green Card Holders) have always been able to vote in local (Georgia only) elections. There was a law put forth in 2009 to stop that, but it was never put into effect. What's more, the SCOTUS ruled that you can't ask for someone to prove their citizenship to vote, only that they are a legal resident.

So that's where we are. But Brad is making a huge push for this "citizen only" crap because he wants to get re-elected as Secretary of State.
