The Georgia House passes a sweeping bill to restrict voting, after dialing back a few measures.

“The bill imposes stricter voter identification requirements, limits drop boxes, strips the secretary of state of some authority, imposes new oversight of county election boards, restricts who can vote with provisional ballots, and creates criminal penalties for those who offer food or water to voters waiting in lines.

“However, the bill did not include some of the harshest restrictions that had been introduced in its earlier versions, like a ban on Sunday voting that had been seen as an attempt to curtail the role of Black churches in driving turnout. And the bill now, in fact, expands early voting options in some areas. No-excuse absentee voting also remains in place, though new restrictions such as providing a state-issued identification card have been placed on the process. “
