Could Democrats be Suppressing Voter Turnout in Georgia?

As Democrats continue to push false allegations about Brian Kemp, some voters could stay home thinking they can't vote

In yet another crazy conspiracy theory to undermine our electoral process, Democrats across the country are accusing Brian Kemp of "stealing" Georgia's gubernatorial election against Stacey Abrams. The accusation is based on 53,000 voter registration applications that have been flagged as "pending" by the Secretary of State's office. Democrats are all up in arms because these 53,000 people won't be allowed to vote. The only problem? A pending voter registration doesn't prevent you from voting.

This issue goes back to a state law that requires the address in your voter registration file match the address with the DMV. If there is a discrepancy, you will need to present photo ID to verify your information to obtain an absentee ballot or vote at your polling place. If you provide the ID (which is required to vote in Ga anyways), you can still vote in the November election. The "pending" term essentially amounts to a clerical designation. But Democrats seem hellbent on telling Georgians who are on the list they cannot vote, which could cause some people to stay home.

For some reason, Stacey Abrams seems more intent on undermining the credibility of our elections than she is on trying to win. Either that, or her campaign is willing to trade a few thousand inner city minority votes to convince suburban voters that Kemp is a monster. No matter how you slice it, it's very puzzling. Democrats and the media are suggesting to voters that their vote doesn't count, and they shouldn't bother voting. Frankly, it's an embarrassment.

Representative Bert Reeves has an excellent op-ed on the issue here.

I'm sure they have figured that the votes lost to this will be less than the votes gained by trying to portray Kemp as Hitler.

(I started to use spawn of Satan, but that would be a positive thing to Democrats, so I used the tried and true Hitler example of overreach).

Doesn't make any sense. Do the Democrats think that all those new voters are Republicans? Pretty dumb way to suppress voter turnout, unless you know who those votes would be cast for.

Democrats are not being truthful? Who would have guessed??
