Democratic Party of Georgia Response to Butch Miller’s Attack On Absentee Voting

December 13, 2021

Today, State Senate President Pro Tempore Butch Miller proposed to ban the use of absentee ballot drop boxes in Georgia elections based on debunked claims of voter fraud, “despite no evidence of fraud with them.” Miller’s proposal comes after he failed to win Donald Trump’s endorsement in the GOP primary for Lieutenant Governor, and after racist comments he made attacking new Georgians “that don’t think like us,” stating that “they need to assimilate into our values and our culture.”

“Butch Miller’s proposal to blow up our elections based on lies is part of his sad, desperate attempt to win over far-right voters after Donald Trump endorsed his primary opponent. We already know Butch Miller is terrified of Georgia’s diversifying electorate – now, he’s trying to silence the voters of color who elected Democrats last cycle by banning one of the most popular ways they chose to cast their ballots,” said Scott Hogan, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “The Georgia GOP is hellbent on restricting voting to install their far-right, anti-democratic leaders. No one who wants to suppress Georgia voters deserves to make our laws or help lead our state, and Georgia Democrats will not stop fighting to protect our elections from Republicans who clearly don’t believe in democracy.”
