Suppression is about whether you make it difficult for voters to access the ballot. And in Georgia we know difficulty has been put in place for too many Georgians[.]

Democratic turnout increased 30% over the last midterm in 2018 [which is pre-Wuhan Virus situation]….
The pre-set conclusion is all that matters.
