• Increasing voter ID requirements for people mailing in absentee ballots, who now have to submit identification details and a driver’s license number or other forms of government-issued ID when requesting an absentee ballot as well as when submitting it.

  • Cutting down on the number of absentee ballot boxes that can be used.
  • Limiting mobile voting stations to emergency use.
  • Requiring that absentee ballots be requested at least 11 days before the election (previously, they could be requested through the Friday before Election Day).
  • Requiring counties to publish the total number of votes cast and by what methods by 10 p.m. on election night.
  • Allowing the State Election Board to “suspend county or municipal superintendents and appoint an individual to serve as the temporary superintendent in a jurisdiction.”
  • Allowing a Georgia voter to challenge the qualifications of an unlimited number of other voters in their county or municipality.
