  1. Hmmm…. She needs absentee, but can haul her ass to the hearing to complain? “Sarah Holmes, a Chatham County resident who described herself as a senior citizen, said she has experience voting by absentee ballot but now worries she will make a mistake under the state’s new voting law.”

  2. Yes, as a person who deals with people’s documents in different capacities, I’m sure it is easier for a person to attend a meeting than scan and send a document. Most seniors I deal with don’t know how to scan and send documents.

    What do you think? She’s some kind of George Soros agent?

  3. So we just had the largest absentee vote in American history .
    And it came off without a hitch as verified by :

    “THE ELECTION RESULTS IN GEORGIA WERE TALLIED THREE TIMES, INCLUDING ONCE BY HAND, ”

    The largest absentee vote in American history yielded no more evidence of fraud than any other vote in our history ,
    CERTIFIED !
    How can this be considered anything but the biggest success in voting ever recorded ?
    That and the greatest evidence ever seen of the superior judgement, honesty enriched personalities , stable moral foundations of all Georgians when they were presented with the unique one time opportunity to let their enthusiasm for their candidate lead them down the never more attainable path to vote fraud .
    What is energizing this mal-contentment infused legislation in light of the great voting success we certifiably achieved in 2020 , as agreed by both parties, yielding such miniscule amounts of fraud where the potential was greater than ever ?

  4. Maybe this will send more people to the polls IF the virus hysteria will wane. Paper ballots can be messy for more reasons than signatures on an application. Some are so poorly marked that a review committee has to guess who the voter marked. Marking more than one candidate is shockingly common.
