After Georgia turned blue in the November election, state lawmakers passed what critics are calling one of the most restrictive voting laws in the nation. Voting-rights advocates are vowing to sue over the new law, which targets early voting and mail-in voting. What are your thoughts?

Gwen Briggs, Washington, D.C.
One-sided laws. They forgot the part about ‘by the people, for the people.’ Do these folks really think they can put laws in place that represent the watered-down version of who they think should have a voice? They should think again. No one will sit by and just let this fly. Call it out for what it is. It’s voter suppression at its most desperate attempt.

Glenroy Green, New York
Privileged, power-grabbing racist folks can’t stand the idea that other people are living in this society. When people show you who and what they are, believe them. You can’t help but to call it what it is. Black folks need to get out and vote constantly and in record numbers. This is blatant racism, right before your very eyes.

Jim Crow is in power. Stacey Abrams is going to teach you a lesson in 2022.

Willie White, Washington, D.C.
This is so stupid! Clearly the only way those reps can win is by cheating. Not only do they make people wait long hours to vote, now you can’t give them food or water. Power-hungry slugs!

Iris Richardson, Washington, D.C.
This is so sad. When we do play by the rules and pull our resources together to make change, they change the rules. [It] is so obvious that we will never have a place in this America.
