Georgia passed election reform laws meant to address the many problems that surfaced in 2020.

President Biden went so far as calling it “Jim Crow on steroids.” The biggest target of complaint is a provision requiring absentee voters to include proof of ID when they mail in their ballots.
Many corporations have joined the protest, including Delta Airlines, Coke, Bank of America, Levis Strauss, and Major League Baseball.
