Most legislation is passed to solve a problem. In Georgia, more people voted than ever before. That's good. Election officials declared the election problem-free. That's good. The will of the majority prevailed. That's good. So what's the problem?
The problem is that the wrong people won to them. It's naive to read the new law as if it were some objective act, a kind of high ideal of election law. It has to be read in the context that birthed it--a shocking Democratic trifecta. The few not very expansive measures in the law are cover; they'll do little if anything to ease access to the vote. Absentee voting brought the Democratic victory and so absentee voting is the target of the restrictive measures. No one should be fooled. The aim is simply to reduce the numbers of votes likely to go Democratic--that's it. The problem for Republicans is that the wrong people won. The goal is to make sure that doesn't happen again.
