What Nathan Deal Thinks about Voting Rights
Called Grandmothers without birth certificates(Ghetto Grandmothers)

The Democrats of Georgia position on voting rights is very clear: we have to ensure that every eligible voter can register, that every registered voter can vote, and that every vote is accurately counted.

The Democrats of Georgia report the following-That’s why we’re proud that Democratic candidate for Governor, Sen. Jason Carter, is a true voting rights advocate. As a lawyer, he did pro bono work on a legal challenge to a Republican-backed voter ID law. The service earned him the Stuart Eizenstat Young Lawyer Award from the Anti-Defamation League. As a Georgia Senator, he has fought for increased access to the ballot and against an overly partisan gerrymandering of our legislative and congressional districts.

Today, Sen. Jason Carter said, “The right to vote is the foundation of our democracy. Civil rights icons like Martin Luther King and John Lewis fought hard to make sure that every eligible voter could cast their ballot without impediment, and it’s up to us to defend and build upon that progress.”

Georgia Republicans have a drastically different take on voting rights. Since Gov. Nathan Deal took office, the GA GOP has led the charge to limit your rights, making the process more complicated and creating barriers like voter-ID laws that prevent too many Georgians from casting a ballot. Just this year, Republicans attempted to shorten early voting from twenty-one days to six days.

And what are Nathan Deal’s personal views on voting rights? Here’s what he said about discriminatory voter-ID laws:

Still can't convince me that there is a valid reason for not having some form of ID. You need an ID to receive government benefits, cash a check, to seek medical care etc. It's common sense which of course as of late is not too common...

...and here's an easy solution. Since all US citizens must have a Social Security card all that the Feds need to do is provide a picture to your card at 18. No more emotional demagoguery

@Funk-that idea is worth looking into. I would share that with our state rep.

I will say that part od the GOP focus should also focus on mitigating impediments to obtaining an ID. This at least demonstrate that they do concur that every registered voter be afforded the opportunity to vote unfettered.

if you can make it to the poll to vote, you can make it to the DMV to get a id. they are free. so there is no excuse to appose voter id, except if your counting on people to vote multiple times. or the dead voting. the dems keep saying that it's not that big of a deal, but in the last election 35,000 in NC. had there info used in other states to vote, to include dead people.

The only reason one might resist strict voter I D would be to gain advantage on the system.
