Democrats Telling Lefties to Move to Georgia to Vote in the Upcoming Runoff Elections

Some prominent Democrats, including former presidential candidate Andrew Yang, have suggested that out-of-state liberals should move to Georgia in the coming weeks to vote in the Senate runoff elections next month, reports The Epoch Times.

The January 5, 2021 runoff elections are very important.

Should Democrats get the two seats, one held by Sens. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) and the other by David Perdue (R-Ga.), they would have a majority in both the Senate and the House and could pretty much push through any wacko lefty legislation they desire.

A Senate Republican majority would be an important roadblock.

According to the Times, Yang said on Twitter that both he and his wife are moving to Georgia to campaign for Democratic candidates Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock against Perdue and Loeffler.

But Georgia state officials said that the move, if carried out en masse, is a risky one and could be illegal. Any possible voters have to move and register by next month.

An official with the Georgia Secretary of State’s office, which oversees elections, told the Wall Street Journal that it is a felony to vote in Georgia elections if you are not a legal resident or are residing in the state briefly before moving away.

According to state law (pdf), anyone who is a “legal resident of the county” must have all the requirements such as being a citizen, being old enough to vote, and having a Social Security number or a Georgia driver’s license. They also have to fill out a form and send it to the Georgia Secretary of State office by Dec. 7.

On Nov. 6, Yang suggested that Democrats from out of state should “get ready to head to Georgia” to “give Joe [Biden] a unified government.” 

Around the same time, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman also told CNN that he wants “everybody” to move “to Georgia in the next month or two, registers to vote, and votes for these two Democratic senators.”

“There should be a coordination of resources. Everyone who campaigned for Joe should get ready to head to Georgia. I’ll go,” he said. “It’s the only way to sideline Mitch and give Joe a unified government. There isn’t much time. The earliest date for absentee ballots to be mailed for the runoff is Nov. 18. The registration deadline is Dec. 7. The in-person early voting begins Dec. 14.”

  1. Who has the time, money and patience to pick-up and move to another state, just for the miniscule influence one vote would bring? It shows what shiftless losers they are, with no meaningful, productive contributions being made by these losers.

  2. When they come out publicly with calls like this, how can they then credibly claim that there should be no doubts about election integrity?
