Bad News: Vote Suppression Can Win in Georgia
Absentee Ballots Plunge by a Million

[Nov 6, 2022: Atlanta, GA] Let me break the bad news: Absentee ballots voted in Georgia have PLUNGED by A MILLION VOTES — from 1.2 million just before the 2020 election to a paltry 0.2 million, an 83% drop. Why? Because under Gov. Brian Kemp’s new law SB202, mail-in balloting has become insanely difficult, requiring enclosing an ID. And he’s shuttered every absentee drop box except during early polling hours — and all drop boxes are locked in offices. NONE are functioning now.

As one elections official told me on condition of anonymity, while in-person Election Day voting could rise, it’s just not going to get close to the number of voters — overwhelmingly Democrats — who lost their right to vote by mail.

The poster for our film, Vigilante: Georgia’s Vote Suppression Hitman, is a ballot drop box shot full of holes by Kemp’s operators. Unfortunately, our warning is becoming too true.

The Palast Investigative Fund have made Vigilante: Georgia’s Vote Suppression Hitman available to stream for FREE for a limited time at:


Vigilante: Georgia’s Voter Suppression Hitman — written by Greg Palast and narrated by Rosario Dawson — exposes the most brazen, racist attack on voting rights yet.
