At least one Georgia election official is demanding an apology from the Biden administration in light of the state’s ongoing record voter participation, the state’s lawsuit against the Biden administration for alleged racist voting tactics, and the president’s claim that the system is “Jim Crow 2.0.”
What record-breaking voter turnout must we surpass before Stacey Abrams and Vice President Biden apologize to Georgia? The Georgia Secretary of State’s office revealed data on Friday showing a steady rise in voting in the Peach State, and Gabriel Sterling, the office’s chief operating officer, told Fox News Digital in a statement.
Georgia’s Secretary of State Office reported in an press release this week that the state has seen a record-high early voting turnout since the first day of early voting started on Monday.
According to a press release, just under 400,000 voters had already cast votes, which is a 63% increase over the same point in the 2018 midterm election and just marginally less than the three-day early voting total from the 2020 presidential election.
Ahead of the midterm elections, BIden is shamelessly pleading for political favors, according to Dan Bongino.
According to the office, managed by Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, “We’re on course to break records in terms of voter turnout in every category.” “223,576 Georgians cast mail-in ballots for governor in 2018. We have received 239,789 requests for absentee ballots so far this year, and 238,356 have been shipped out. We’ll get more mail-in ballots than we did in 2018. We have been shattering the early voting record from 2018 and are very close to the early voting figures from 2020.
The office of Raffensperger highlighted that turnout is normally substantially higher during presidential years.

High voting turnout does not disprove claims of voter suppression, according to a statement from Stacey Abrams’ campaign for governor that was provided to Fox News Digital when it inquired about an apology from Abrams.
According to Jaylen Black, press secretary and spokeswoman for the Abrams campaign, “high turnout is not associated with voter access—rather, the power of organization and the urgency of people to remove Brian Kemp and his supporters’ far-right extremism from their communities.” “The SOS should concentrate on maintaining short lines, preventing another crash of our ENet system, and enabling voters to obtain the ballot throughout this election cycle,” said the SOS.

Abrams was making reference to an temporary crash of the ENet early voting website, which is used to register voters on Monday.
The incident lasted less than ten minutes, according to Raffensperger’s office, and is another illustration of the large attendance.
Because of the overwhelmingly high demand brought on by the record-breaking attendance, the e-Net system had to be taken offline for 8 minutes on the first day. Voting and Elections’ Public Information Officer, Mike Hassinger, stated in a statement sent by email. Every eligible voter who desires to cast a ballot may do so.
In “JIM CROW 2.0?” Following Georgia’s breaking of early voting records, conservatives denounce democratic scare tactics.
In an effort to get the White House to apologize to Georgia, Fox News Digital also contacted them but got no answer.
In March 2021, Biden referred to an election integrity measure that Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp had passed into law as “Jim Crow in the 21st Century.” It has to end. Acting is required by both moral and constitutional principles.
The proposal, according to Biden, is a “assault on the right to vote” since it contains clauses that “essentially deny the right to vote to countless voters.”
Before a record turnout in Georgia, CNN and MSNBC ran with “Jim Crow” voter suppression claims.
According to Fox News Digital, the Department of Justice declined to comment on the complaint it brought against Georgia last year.
Earlier this year, during the primary season, Georgia also broke its previous early voting record.
Hans von Spakovsky, senior legal scholar at The Heritage Foundation’s Meese Center for Legal and Judicial Studies, said the DOJ’s action was a “failure” and that it had been “remarkably ineffective” up to that point in an interview with Fox News Digital in September.
When Fox News Digital asked the White House and the Department of Justice for comments at the time, neither responded.
