ATLANTA—The Georgia General Assembly passed Senate Bill 189, which includes provisions that would make it easier for people to file baseless, mass voter challenges, requires all advance and absentee ballots to be counted within an hour of the polls closing, changes ballot design, makes harmful changes for unhoused citizens, and creates unrealistic and burdensome requirements of election workers. The ACLU of Georgia strongly opposes this bill.

“Access to the ballot is at the heart of our democracy. This election ‘Frankenbill’ violates the National Voter Registration Act. We are committed to protecting Georgia voters. If the governor signs this bill, we will see him in court." -- Andrea Young, executive director, ACLU of Georgia.
