Georgia officials are demanding an apology from Joe Biden and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams for blasting their state’s electoral system.
Even though both Biden and Abrams established Georgia is promoting Jim Crow laws, early voting turnout is breaking all the previous records in the state.
Georgians Participating in Early Voting En Masse
Gabriel Sterling is the chief operating officer at the office of Georgia’s Secretary of State.
He asked Biden and Abrams how many voter turnout records they need to issue an apology regarding their controversial claims about Georgia’s electoral system.
NBC News: More than 130,000 votes were cast on the first day of early voting in Georgia, according to the Secretary of State's office. That surpasses the record for the first day of early voting in a midterm, which was set in 2018. @MSNBC

Early voting already started in Georgia last Monday.
As per the press release issued by Georgia’s Secretary of State, almost 63% more voters cast their votes last Wednesday, compared to the votes cast in the first three days of early voting of the 2018 midterm elections.
Similarly, the early voting turnout this year is just shy of the 2020 election; presidential elections often have higher voter turnout, compared to the midterm elections.
According to Republican Secretary of State of Georgia Brad Raffensperger, the state is breaking all the previous early voting turnout records, which means it is now easier to vote in the state.
Last year, Biden stated Georgia is promoting Jim Crow laws in the 21st century while slamming Georgia Governor Brian Kemp who passed the Election Integrity Act.
Back then, Biden noted Georgia is seeking to curtail the rights of thousands of voters by passing voter suppression laws.
.@GaSecofState press release indicates Georgia voters continue to turn out in droves:
"Saturday’s total marks an astounding 159% increase from day 6 of 2018 midterm Early Voting & shattered the turnout record of day 6 of Early Voting in the 2020 Prez election by 20%."

Dems Fail to Issue Apology for Georgia Electoral System
Fox News contacted Stacey Abrams’ campaign and asked them to issue an apology regarding their baseless allegations against the election system of the state.
However, Abrams’ campaign established increasing numbers of early voting do not suggest that there is no voter suppression in Georgia.
Jaylen Black, the spokesperson of Abrams’ campaign, noted the high voter turnout means that people are so desperate to remove incumbent Republican Governor Brian Kemp and his administration.
Black also urged the Secretary of State to focus on keeping voter lines short and maintaining the electoral system of the state properly, so voter access can be increased in the state.
Abrams asked the secretary to fix the crashing of the ENet voting system, which crashed for less than ten minutes on the first day of voting.
One election official, Mike Hassinger, claimed the early voting system only crashed for eight minutes, which itself signifies voter turnout was more than expected.
This is not the first time Georgia is recording exceptional early voting turnout. Earlier this year, the state also broke previous records of early voting in the primary elections amid the presence of new voting laws.
Fox News also contacted the White House to demand their apology for blaming Georgia’s system, but the White House did not respond.
An Obama-appointed judge already dismissed the concerns of liberal groups about the constitutionality of the election process in Georgia.
