Election Reform Restored Georgia's Trust in Voting
Georgia voters support their new election law by an 11-point margin (50-39). Most importantly for lawmakers, independent voters support the law by an even wider 14-point margin (49-35).
Our poll examined different parts of the new law and asked voters which portions gave them more confidence in their election system.
These reform components are what moved voters most:
Local election administrators prohibited from receiving private donations or gifts. (Most popular overall.)
Counties are required to securely monitor drop boxes.
Voter ID for absentee/mail-in votes. (Most popular with Republicans and Independents.)
More polling locations for areas with long lines. (Most popular with Democrats; Our focus groups show they’re very worried about long lines.)
More voting machines for areas with long lines.
Georgia state IDs are available for free.
Fraud reporting hotline.
Election officials can be punished legally for disenfranchising voters.
Polls allowed to be open from 7 am-7 pm on weekdays during early voting.
State legislature can compel election officials to do their jobs.
