“The right to vote is one of the most sacred civil liberties we have as citizens. We believe voting should be easy for every citizen and that each vote should count the same,” said Nicole Robinson, ACLU of Georgia policy analyst. “We urge state legislators to conduct every aspect of this process out in the open, because transparency is key to preserving faith in our democracy.”
