Georgia sets voting records despite claims that election reform would suppress votes

| October 23, 2022

Biden described Georgia’s election reform as “Jim Crow 2.0”. Stacy Abrams argued that the new election law would reduce voter access. Yet both, along with those who claimed that voter reform laws would reduce voting, are constantly being proven wrong. So far, Georgia has seen large voter turnout for early voting, and are showing larger voter turnout in a growing number of categories. The election reform laws appear to have an opposite effect on the electorate than what Democrats claimed.

From Fox News:

“We’re on track to break records in terms of voter turnout in every category,” the office, led by Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, told Fox News Digital. “In 2018, 223,576 Georgians voted by mail for Governor. So far this year, we’ve received 239,789 requests for absentee ballots, 238,356 have been mailed out. We’ll exceed 2018’s total for mailed-in ballots. So far we’ve been breaking the early vote record set in 2018, and we’re approaching the early vote numbers in 2020.”

Raffensperger’s office noted that presidential years typically have much higher turnout.

Fox News Digital reached out to the gubernatorial campaign of Stacey Abrams and asked about a potential apology from Abrams and received a statement that said high voter turnout does not invalidate voter suppression allegations.

“High turnout is not synonymous to voter access—rather the power of organizing and the urgency of voters to remove Brian Kemp and his allies’ far-right extremism from their communities,” Jaylen Black, Press Secretary and Spokeswoman for the Abrams campaign told Fox News Digital via email. “The SOS should focus on keeping lines short, preventing our ENet system from crashing again, and empowering voters to access the ballot throughout this election cycle.”

Abrams was referencing a temporary crash of the ENet online early voting system that is used to check in voters on Monday.

Raffensperger’s office told Fox News Digital the crash lasted less than ten minutes and serves as another example of the high turnout.

“The e-Net system went down for 8 minutes on the first day to increase the bandwidth needed because of overwhelming demand -due to the record-breaking turnout!” Mike Hassinger, Public Information Officer of Voting and Elections, said in an emailed statement. “Every eligible voter who wants to vote, can vote.”

Fox News Digital also reached out to the White House about issuing an apology to Georgia and did not receive a response.

“This is Jim Crow in the 21st Century,” Biden said in March 2021 about an election integrity bill that Georgia’s Republican Gov. Brian Kemp signed into law. “It must end. We have a moral and Constitutional obligation to act.”

Biden added that the legislation was an “attack on the right to vote” containing provisions that “effectively deny the right to vote to countless voters.”

When you piss off the voters, expect they’ll vote.


Generally, I expect the complete opposite of what ever a Democrat/Ministry of Propaganda says is going happen. I pedo Joe or Drunk-ass-Nan told the sun is going rise in the East I probably wouldn’t believe them.


Just don’t expect them to vote for what pissed ’em off though, of course.


Cam girl much?

High turnout is not synonymous to voter access

Is that the best you got? Anyone with two brain cells can see they’re correlated. Well, unless Jaylen Black is a fan of spontaneous generation which still has no scientific basis (h/t to Louis Pasteur).

So the eNet inconvenienced some people? Regrettable. Honestly.

“A Right delayed is a Right denied”

Let’s see a Stacy “The Tank” Abrams regime feel the same way about the NICS in the Peach State.

({knocks on wood, casts salt, says prayer} not advocating for that loser to have a crack at the title)


Well, it didn’t include felons, illegal aliens and dead people voting Democrat early and often so that’s exclusionarily “racist” for left/libtards.

Received three (3) more requests for mail in voting app this past week. The real vote count won’t happen until about 0300 hours on 9 Nov when several boxes of previously uncounted ballots are “found”.

“Jim Crow” The Stage Name of Blackface Minstrel NY actor Thomas D. Rice. The name became a popular way to describe blacks then. (1832 on). Many Northern States had laws against ANY blacks being in their state including Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Oregon. (1847). Ohio Kongress Kritter threatened the use of armed troops to stop emancipated blacks from entering. ‘Cump Sherman hated blacks, refused to allow any to be in his Army and looked the other way when his bands of bummers pillaged the blacks worse than they did the white folks. MG Jeff Davis pulled up his pontoon bridges on Ebeneezer Creek and shelled the crossing to prevent the thousands of blacks following the Army from staying with them. Many drowned, others KIA from the shelling.



**continued** Jim Crow.

Illinois Sen Lyman Trumbull “there is a great aversion in the West…having the free Negros come among us. Our people want nothing to do with the Negro.” Lincoln speech on KS & NE Statehood 1854, “…we are preserving those states for the homes of white people.” Abe in 1860 “…deportation of blacks…” 1868, 12 Northern/Mid Western States had laws prohibiting or sharply limiting black voting rights.

During “Reconstruction” most former Confederates were not allowed to vote or hold office. The Southern States Governments were filled with carpetbaggers and scalawags who adopted these same laws and other laws designed to keep the people of the South, White and Black, in economic bondage (read sharecropping).

Thus endith the abbreviated lesson. Now you know.

Quit blaming Southerners on the ills brought about by African Tribal Chieftains and damyanky slave ship builders (that stole Native Land to build cotton plantations).


KOB Don’t forget both Deleware and New Jersy voted not to ratify the 13th amendment to abolish slavery. It wasn’t until Georgia ratified the 13th amendment becoming the 27th of the 36 required States to incorporate the 13th Amendment into the Constitution on 6 December 1865that slavery was abolished in the country.

Not only did the Delaware legislature reject initial ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment, but it also rejected the Fourteenth Amendment of 1868 and the Fifteenth Amendment of 1870, which extended civil rights and voting privileges, respectively, to Black people, including the formerly enslaved. Finally, on February 12, 1901, Delaware ratified the Thirteenth Amendment abolishing slavery—more than 30 years after the rest of the nation.


Spot on, USAFRetired. Yeah, I coulda went on and on with such examples, trying to be brief and not burn up too much bandwidth, That 1K character limit can be a cast iron bitch. Delaware was also the HQs for the Inc that made a bloody fortune from financing the African Slave Trade and the building of the ships used. The door got opened with the “Jim Crow” term. Been wanting to get that history lesson out there for a while now. I appreciate the add ons in your comment. I still think that Corn Pop was actually the good guy.

The part they left out is that Raffensbooger will support and protect any attempts at election fraud by the socialist democrats, like he did before.


The D-rats will be doubling down on every method of vote fraud. Just watch what happens next month.


Heck yeah!! Worked for Al Franken!
