I feel folks aren’t bringing up the topic of them changing Election Officers in specifically black and brown counties so they can do what Trump wanted and actually change the vote—Seems that isn’t be lifted up

That’s what the new GA voter suppression does—they can change Election Officers—whenever they want
JoAnn Loulan

This is what Trump wanted GA Sec of State to do and Election Officers—and they all resisted but now they took away the right for the Sec of State and the Election Officers
JoAnn Loulan

I’m talking about the new law in GA and they will change the Election Officers and make them change the vote
