The Georgia bill did not erode voting rights. I'm sure that if it did, Edna Courville ("We will not allow our voting rights to be eroded," The Daily News, March 31) would've listed the portions of the bill she's objected to. She failed to list even one.
Georgia's new law says voters must have a driver's license or state ID number or photocopy of an ID to vote. Georgia provides all Georgians with free IDs. The new law limits the time people have to request an absentee ballot to the amount of time asked for by the U.S. Postal Service, so that they have enough time to deliver the absentee ballots before the election.
It restricts ballot drop box locations and when they can be accessed, so that they can be provided with adequate security. The easier option to using costly ballot drop boxes, is to use one of a multitude of existing U.S. Postal Service mailboxes.
The bill expands early voting on weekends. The new law bans people from giving anything of value to people within 150-feet of a polling site. Everyone wants free and fair elections, elections where each ballot can be traced to a single, legal voter who made their choice free of coercion. This is what the new law does.
