Wow, that headline is criminally misleading by leaving out crucial details. If I had to guess that's what the creator of that video wanted to accomplish which is gaining as much attention as possible to the underlying problem of voter oppression.

That said, there will be too many people just reading the headline instead of watching at least the beginning of the video which has nothing to do with Pizza and water so they'll get agitated by the wrong topic.

Yes, for people waiting in line. The teaser of the video states "GEORGIA OUTLAWS PIZZA" which without that addition is obviously a false statement since Pizza and water are not banned per se.

I'm absolutely not defending that bill, that's criminal as well, but the video (and article) headline is misleading, and as I wrote I'm guessing the author did that on purpose to gain as much attention to voter oppression and the bill itself.

So Kemp said Colorado has more restrictive laws. Ok so then why doesn't Georgia just mirror Colorado voting laws? I mean what he basically said was Georgia's law is less secure and has the virtue of being widely disliked. The truth is the goal was to make long lines longer in hopes of getting people to give up. Georgia had lines for days lasting as long as 10-11 hours. My guess is in 2022 it will have a very large turn out getting more angry at Kemp and Republicans thought I know someone will die in those lines too.

Let's take a look at Kemp's bullshit claim:

You can register same-day in Colorado.
You can also give water to those in line.
Yes, Colorado has fewer in-person voting days. It's because every registered voter receives a ballot about 15 to 20 days before the election. 94% of the votes cast were mail-in in the 2020 general.
Colorado has one drop-box per 10,000 registered voters. Georgia wants to limit it to one box per 100,000 voters. Atlanta metro's drop-box count could drop by 75%.
Many of Colorado's drop-boxes are 24 hours. All of Georgia's have to be within government buildings, with normal business hours.
For registering, Colorado accepts nearly 3x as many documents as proof of ID as Georgia.
