GEORGIA'S NEW VOTING LAWS CRIMINALIZE COMMON CHRISTIAN COURTESY

America is the greatest country in the world because of her citizens' sense of community, patriotism, and unwavering commitment to free and honest elections. 

 

For our democracy to work, American citizens must have equal opportunities to vote their values and participate in honest elections. Most crucially, the American public needs to trust that our elections are fair. 

 

But new voting laws in Georgia, written to fit political agendas instead of safeguarding hardworking Georgians’ freedom to vote, have caused trust in our democracy to drop. 

 

New laws in Georgia:

  • Criminalize churches for giving water to thirsty voters waiting in line,

  • Sanction nonprofits that help Georgia citizens learn how to legally vote by mail,

  • Allow anyone to challenge an unlimited number of voters without evidence.

 

These laws threaten the values our country was built on—and as faithful citizens, we can’t let them go unchecked. 

Protecting the Future of Election Integrity in Georgia

To ensure America remains the shining city on a hill and beacon of freedom and democracy to the world, we need to do better in our state. The first step is ensuring Georgia’s citizens understand the new laws, and who is most affected.

Did You Know?

  • Despite this, Georgia has passed new laws to make it harder for citizens to vote and easier for politicians to pick their voters, even making it illegal for churches to hand out water to voters waiting in line.  

  • Georgia’s new voting restrictions are especially hard on veterans, elderly, and young people–and empower politicians and dark money groups to throw out votes cast in good faith by American citizens.

WE MUST STAND UP FOR OUR RIGHT TO BEAR CHRISTIAN WITNESS THROUGH KINDNESS.

How These Laws Affect Christians in Georgia

As Christians, we are called to be a light unto the world.

 

Because of this calling, Christian churches often volunteer their spaces to be polling places for elections. Churches then offer water as a witness to people waiting outside to vote in the sun, especially for parents with children.

Georgia’s new voting law, SB 202, makes it illegal for Christians to hand out water to voters.

This new law to ensure voters waiting in long lines remain thirsty doesn’t protect anyone’s vote. It's simply an overreach of power by the government.  

America is stronger when simple acts of kindness aren’t criminalized. But SB 202 undermines our core American values and makes Christian kindness illegal.
