As NewsOne reported earlier Tuesday, signs of major issues with voting were almost immediate in Georgia, from long lines to old voting machines. Sadly, voters were experiencing this in real-time and it was mainly in Black areas.
MSNBC’s Ayman Mohyeldin revealed that the state of Georgia did not supply power cords for electronic voting machines in Snellville, Georgia, which is a predominately Black community. Pema Levy from Mother Jones reported that Common Cause Georgia was claiming 53,000 voters may be forced to cast provisional ballots, which would obviously affect the election.
These reports were just scratching the surface. See the reports below from actual voters.
