GOP suppresses black voting in Georgia’s runoff election

Voting rights groups denounced election officials in Hall County, Georgia, for shuttering 4 of the county’s 8 polling locations, “which the groups say is limiting turnout of Black and Latino voters” in the early voting in the Jan. 5, 2021, Senate runoff election, Huffington Post reported on Wednesday, December 23, 2020.

“During a Wednesday conference call hosted by several prominent national and Georgia-based Latino groups, activists said that the closures are concentrated in the county’s Latino and Black communities,” Huffington Post said. “Georgia has seen massive turnout since early voting began …. But similar surges haven’t taken place in Hall County,” a spokesman for the NAACP’s voting rights project said. Read story here.

This is cheating by a party that complains about “election fraud” which doesn’t exist. Driven, of course, by racism.
