More than record numbers. The early voting is “Blacker, older” than in recent elections. You know, the supposed bloc the law was meant to suppress. LOL.
Remember the record-shattering numbers in Georgia’s primary elections in May?
Pepperidge Farms remembers.
Georgia continues to see record high early voting numbers! Get this. The turnout is “Blacker, older” than in recent elections. Narrative busted:
After one full week of in-person early voting in Georgia, nearly 838,000 people have already cast their ballots in an election that is expected to shatter midterm records.
According to an analysis of absentee data from the secretary of state’s office, turnout is nearly 60% higher than the same point in time in the 2018 general election, thanks in part to record voter interest and the increasing shift in voters utilizing the state’s three-week early voting period.
Looking at the demographics of Georgia’s voters so far, the electorate is older and Blacker than this time in previous elections, as tightly contested races for U.S. Senate, governor and other statewide offices is driving voter enthusiasm.
As of this morning, we've seen 837,597 ballots cast in Georgia. 758,808 early in person & 78,789 absentees accepted. That means we should pass the 1 million mark by tomorrow, a full 2 weeks before Election Day. A record numbers of voters for a midterm. #gapol #PlanYourVote pic.twitter.com/8e36qQF9NR

On Tuesday, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted voter suppression still happens.
Jean-Pierre beat around the bush when confronted about Georgia’s early voting record turnout:
JEAN-PIERRE: “So, as you know, I got to be careful. I cannot get into politics from here, so I won’t comment specifically on that race or on the elections or their data that’s coming out of Georgia, but the President has been very clear that, based on the big lie, there have been a host of anti-voter policies forced on states that challenge America’s fundamental right to vote, right, the access to voting.”
You cannot get into politics? Since when? I guess only when your narrative is shattered into a million tiny pieces.
Reporter: "President Biden last year likened the new Georgia voting law to 'Jim Crow in the 21st century' but turnout so far has smashed midterm records."

"Was President Biden wrong with his assessment of Georgia's voting law or does he stand by that 'Jim Crow' comparison?"
