Major League Baseball opted to move the game out of Atlanta due to voting laws passed in Georgia last month.
Supporters of the new law have said it merely ensures election integrity and stamps out potential fraud, while critics have described it as a voter suppression tactic that would make it more hard for minorities, particularly people of color, to vote, citing how it reduces ballot access in urban communities that lean Democratic. "So what I'm being told, they also have a photo ID requirement".
Kemp also criticized the president for appearing at the NCAA championship game in IN, given Biden's comments, because in was "the birthplace for the photo ID requirement". In other words, a Colorado voter may use any of several forms of identification, including some without a photo, in order to vote. But the vast majority of Coloradans don't need to show an ID in order to vote; a year ago, more than 94% of Colorado voters cast their ballots by returning them through the mail or in drop boxes, according to election-night data from the Colorado Secretary of State's office.More news: Peel Region schools move classes online
When voting absentee in Colorado, voters only need to provide identification for the first time they cast an absentee ballot.
The new voting law came in the wake of the first Democratic victories in presidential and Senate elections in Georgia in a generation, which triggered repeated unproven assertions by former President Donald Trump that the state's election was fraudulent.
With this decision, we'd like to know, will you watch the All-Star Game in-person, on broadcast, or not at all? "It would be good for baseball and good for Colorado".More news: Biden says higher corporate taxes won't harm USA economy
