GOP Politicians & Pundits Lie About Colorado's Voting Laws In Attempt To Embarrass MLB

Last week, the MLB announced it would be pulling its All-Star Game out of Georgia in response to the state’s restrictive new voting law, and moving it to far more voter-friendly Colorado.

The bill was passed by Georgia’s Republican-dominated legislature and signed into law by Gov. Brian Kemp (R) at the end of last month. Now, the GOP machine is scrambling to defend the action the prompted the move — and its mouthpieces have chosen to lie, loudly and repeatedly, about Colorado’s voting system.

On Tuesday, Republican politicians and conservative outlets alike claimed that Colorado’s and Georgia’s voting laws are actually quite similar. Fox News went further, suggesting that Colorado’s laws may actually be more restrictive. Even the smallest amount of research exposes these claims as clearly false.


But when it comes to election laws, Colorado and Georgia aren’t even in the same ballpark.

“Colorado’s election model works,” Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold told HuffPost in an emailed statement, pointing to the state’s consistently high voter turnout as proof.
