Voter Purges Could Create Another Challenge For Georgia's Homeless
Crossroads Community Ministries assists people who are homeless and have had their voter registration removed for inactivity. By operating like a post office, the nonprofit organization allows the homeless in Atlanta to use their address to receive mail, which allows them to participate in a system that is not designed for their circumstances.
"There does have to be a balance between making sure elections are secure and that voters are able to participate in them," said Attorney Jake Evans, who believes that Georgia has found that balance, even when considering voters who are homeless. "I’m confident that if these individuals, like most individuals in Georgia, want to vote, they’re going to have every opportunity to vote," he added.
