What are Georgia’s new voting rules? Yahoo News Explains

On Thursday, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed into law a controversial set of rules that change the way elections are run in the state. Critics say that these laws, which were passed in the Republican-controlled state Legislature, are a clear attempt to restrict access to voting. They are also seen by many as a direct response to the record high turnout in the 2020 general election, which led to historic wins for Democrats. Yahoo News explains what the new rules are and how they may affect future elections.
