The Election Integrity Act of 2021 claims to

"make it easy to vote and hard to cheat."

The Election Integrity Act of 2021 makes it easy to cheat and hard to vote, the latter bring especially true for Blacks, Latinos, Asians, young people and seniors.

- Senator Tonya Anderson

The Election Integrity Act of 2021 is an attack on the Georgians voting rights by:

Banning election grant funding for Georgia counties
Limiting the use and availability of secure ballot drop boxes
Banning non-profit organizations from providing water or food to voters in long lines

Call to Action:

  • Contact your United States Senators and demand they support House Resolution 1, The For The People Act, and House Resolution 4, The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act. We need federal intervention to end Jim Crow 2.0.

  • To local governments, share with your state legislators what the unfunded mandates in the Election Integrity Act of 2021 will cost your county. Explain how these new costs will impact your budget and ability to provide other needed services.

  • To our District Attorneys, Solicitors, and Sheriffs, share with your state legislators your concern about criminalizing human decency. If a church, mosque, or synagogue decides to provide voters water or a blanket, they are immediately deemed criminals. Is that who we are as a state?
  • Most importantly, to all my Georgians, register to vote, become engaged, and make sure you go to the polls. Do not let this law turn you around.

With the entire country’s eyes on Georgia in 2020, the Georgia Legislative Black Caucus, comprised of 65 House and Senate members, presents its 2020 Legislative Priorities. This document represents our collective concerns as citizen representatives and also speaks to the challenges facing many of our constituents, ally organizations, and community partners. As a Caucus, we advocate for public policy that pushes our state to be more equitable, just and innovative. This is a roadmap for substantive action on matters that impact not just African Americans, but all Georgians.

Regardless of your political affiliation, zip code, faith, or any other self-identifier, we have made a space for you to benefit from the following legislative priorities and invite you to advocate for the General Assembly to act boldly, conscientiously and with the foresight to build a Georgia where we all can thrive and achieve our dreams.
