More election reform in GA

UncoverOn Friday, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp signed SB 202, the ‘Election Integrity Act of 2021.’ The bill is intended to ensure election integrity in Georgia’s elections by placing restrictions on voting by mail and greater legislative control over how elections are governed. But the measure failed to address a pivotal component of the state’s election disaster last November, specifically electronic voting equipment.

Rep. Barry Fleming, R-Harlem, who sponsored SB 202, currently has a separate omnibus election bill awaiting consideration on the Senate floor.

I thought the election reform bill in GA was a little weak, but many of the things it was missing are covered in this legislation. Most importantly, it adds a lot of ballot security, and blocks the SecState from entering into any consent decrees without the agreement of the legislature.
