Think about who this really hurts: the people who work the game and make it happen for them. Parking lot attendants, concession folks, security, all the thousand and one little guys behind the scenes ... none of them are making a buck to take home that day now. But, you know, we have to make a point about politics.

What makes it worse is that many of those vendors have already purchased products in preparation for the event. The location of the game is decided 5 years ahead of time. Some people probably even spent time last year making things to sell. Sure some of it can just be sold elsewhere but there are also many items specifically labeled for this date/game. Some people probably already have their permits also.

What's the connection here?

ID is the relevant point here.I
AFAIK, there is no charge for state ID

I'm waiting for them to change their names to the Atlanta National League Team since the name they use now is not PC. After that they can get the Cleveland club to change theirs to the Stink Rivers.

You made the connection. But, AFAIK, there is no connection between voting rights and picking up an item paid for by credit card at Will Call. Fiduciary duty and all.

MLB All Star tickets aren't free, they can cost thousand of dollars. And, the Georgia voting bill is about a lot more than having the proper ID.

This bill takes care of the problems that were presented during the last election, like being able to throw away, or find, 11,870 votes/ballots. It deprives communities of election board independence by allowing legislators to fire and replace election officials at any time, if they, oh say, fail to find or toss votes like Lindsey Graham and Donald Trump wanted them to do.

Hopefully, people like Warnock and Osloff won't win elections anymore, because this bill It makes it harder to vote absentee in run off elections, by limiting the amount of days, and the hours, that absentee ballots can be dropped off and it shortens the run off elections time frame.

It's already a crime to electioneer near the polls, so why forbid people waiting in line for hours to be offered free water? Do they really think that a person who has been standing in line for 5 hours will have their mind changed because of an offer of free water?

Well I like to start some # and have them be renamed after the old minor league team the Crackers

Cracker | Definition of Cracker at Dictionary.com
Search domain www.dictionary.com/browse/crackerwww.dictionary.com...
The term cracker is used as a neutral nickname by inhabitants of Georgia and Florida; it is a positive term of self-reference. But when the nickname is used by outsiders, it is usually with disparaging intent and perceived as insulting by Georgians and Floridians.

Professional sports ended when ESPN became ESPC...what we have now is nostalgia. Or did you not notice the jock strap Super Bowl show and even big companies took a hard pass this year on advertising.

BASEketball makes more sense as the years go by.

The state of Georgia issues a Voter ID card, which is valid for 8 years, at no charge. You only have to provide proof that you're registered to vote.

Do you have to provide proof of citizenship to register to vote? That may be problematic for many.



As many as 7% of United States citizens – 13 million individuals – do not have ready access to citizenship documents. Seven percent of the American citizens surveyed responded that they do not have ready access to U.S. passports, naturalization papers, or birth certificates.2 Using 2000 census calculations of the citizen voting-age population, this translates to more than 13 million American adult citizens nationwide who cannot easily produce documentation proving their citizenship.3

Citizens with comparatively low incomes are less likely to possess documentation proving their citizenship. Citizens earning less than $25,000 per year are more than twice as likely to lack ready documentation of their citizenship as those earning more than $25,000.4 Indeed, the survey indicates that at least 12 percent of voting-age American citizens earning less than $25,000 per year do not have a readily available U.S. passport, naturalization document, or birth certificate.5

Documentation proving citizenship often does not reflect the citizen’s current name. Many of those who possess ready documentation of their citizenship do not have documentation that reflects their current name. For example, survey results show that only 48% of voting-age women with ready access to their U.S. birth certificates have a birth certificate with current legal name6 – and only 66% of voting-age women with ready access to any proof of citizenship have a document with current legal name.7Using 2000 census citizen voting-age population data, this means that as many as 32 million voting-age women may have available only proof of citizenship documents that do not reflect their current name.

I'm so sorry to disappoint you, Sookie!

The network’s post omitted key provisions of the law that provide exceptions to “poll officers” to give voters refreshments as long as they are not provided by political interest groups.

Passing out water is allowed, as long as it is not given in a partisan manner.
Like members of parties giving lunch and a ride to the polls, like has been done in the past.

You need either a form of photo id, such as an expired drivers license, or a non-photo id that shows your full name and date of birth if you're at the county registrar's office. Georgia has required photo id to vote in person since 2010, under O.C.G.A § 21-2-417. Under Code Section 21-2-418, also passed as part of the 2010 bill, and continued in SB 202, people that can't show a valid identification card, cast a provisional ballot. Those ballots are held in a secure location, until a good faith effort is made to determine that the voter was eligible to vote both in the election, and in the county their vote was cast. If they determine that the voter was not eligible to vote in that county, but was eligible to vote in the election, their vote is only counted towards races they are eligible to vote in, but only those races.

Indeed. It is also highly illegal for them to attempt to register.

It may be illegal to try, doesn't mean many don't succeed.


All 50 states require people to be U.S. citizens in order to register to vote in federal elections, and federal law forbids non-citizens from falsely claiming U.S. citizenship to register to vote. However, enforcement mechanisms for such laws are limited, and opportunities to get around them are ample.

The federal voter registration form requires people to declare under penalty of perjury that they are U.S. citizens, but it does not require them to provide documentary evidence that they are citizens. Several states, including Arizona and Georgia, tried to implement such a requirement, but they were blocked from doing so by court rulings backed by the Obama administration.

Excellent. One would hope that people are made aware of this law, lest a lack of ID at the polls lead them to believe that they cannot vote at all.
