Days after the state of Georgia approved a bill to reduce the risk of election fraud and weaken voting rights, the Atlanta Falcons insisted that they have more convenient access to polling stations on Tuesday.
Falcon’s owner Arthur Blank said in a statement: “Every voice and every vote is important and should be heard in our democratic process in Georgia.” The right to vote is only sacred. We should strive to make it easier for eligible citizens to vote, not more complicated. Our business and family foundations will continue to directly support efforts to increase the voting rights of citizens in Georgia and across the country. “
Georgia is one of the major states where Joe Biden won the last presidential election. He won 49.5% of the vote for his opponent Donald Trump and 49.3% of the vote. The latter also tried to reverse this result by putting pressure on Governor Brian Kemp, who is also a Republican, several times.
