    Georgia Republicans pushing bill to reduce voting hours in Atlanta only

    Voters in Atlanta would have one less hour to cast their ballots under a bill that cleared a subcommittee Thursday.

    The legislation, Senate Bill 363, would force the city of Atlanta to close its polls at 7 p.m. like the rest of the state. Currently, Atlanta is allowed to keep precincts open until 8 p.m. under a state law passed in the 1970s.

    The bill was filed by Republican Sen. Matt Brass after Democratic Sen. Jen Jordan won a special election in December to represent a district that covers parts of Atlanta and Cobb County. Voting in Cobb County ended at 7 p.m.

    “All the people in the city of Atlanta have a one-hour advantage on the rest of the state,” said Brass, R-Newnan. “We’re trying to get a little more uniformity.”

    Opponents of the bill said it would limit voting options for residents fighting through Atlanta traffic after long work days.

    Why would it be OK to keep only cities polls open an extra hour, especially if there is a district where the polls are allowed open an extra hour for some but not others?

    1. They can't win unless they cheat

    Prepare for major voter role purges and suppression
    Liberal logic for you. Closing all polls within a state at the same time is....cheating.

    3. Then how about extend the vote closing to 8pm everywhere Brass ya stupid f***stick?

    Only way they can win is to prevent as many people as possible from voting.
    There are drawbacks to that.

    And Georgia has early voting - 28 days before the Thursday before the election. So just
    how is closing the election polls at the same time across the state such a problem?

    Why should Atlanta be different? Are Atlanteans less bright or capable than other Georgians?
    Facts don't matter to DUpipo.
