Sorry, but I have to disagree with the last part. Georgia flipped due to the growth of Atlanta, plus voter registration *despite* suppression, gerrymandering, etc. The state House is still 103 R to 77 D and the state Senate is 34 R to 21 D, despite a near tie in statewide races this year. You would expect a more even balance in the state legislature in a fair setup.
Now that the state flipped, the Secretary of State and Republican legislators suddenly want to make absentee balloting harder, by adding a photo ID requirement in addition to signature, and removing the "no excuse" method we have now. That makes it harder for people who can't take time from work to vote.
