the Georgia State Senate Judiciary subcommittee is holding a hearing Thursday on the state’s election processes, with a number of witnesses, including Marci McCarthy who discussed her claims of voter fraud issues on The Sara Carter Show last month.

Like other GOP poll workers and observers in Georgia, she alleges to have observed irregularities while she was volunteering during the 2020 General Election. McCarthy will be the 35th witness to testify today at the hearing, which began at 1 p.m. ET. She explained to Carter how the issues she observed can be fixed if there’s a full audit of mail-in ballots.after a tight presidential race that has gave way to a rancorous fight over its outcome.

Another Senate hearing was held at 9:30 a.m., by the Senate Government Oversight Committee, which evaluated “the election process to ensure the integrity of Georgia’s voting process,” according to a press release.

New York’s Democratic party is battling over the constitutionality of voter laws. On December 9, the New York City Council will vote on a law to allow green-card holders and residents with work permits to vote in municipal elections.

“Around 808,000 New York City residents who have work permits or are lawful permanent residents would be eligible to vote under the legislation, which has the support of 34 of 51 council members, a veto-proof majority” reports Fox News.

“It’s important for the Democratic Party to look at New York City and see that when voting rights are being attacked, we are expanding voter participation,” Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, a sponsor of the bill and Democrat who represents the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan, told the New York Times. Rodriguez immigrated from the Dominican Republic and became a U.S. citizen in 2000.

Fox News reports:

Laura Wood, Chief Democracy Officer for the mayor’s office, said at a hearing on the bill in September that the law could violate the New York State Constitution, which states that voters must be U.S. citizens age 18 or older.

Mayor Bill de Blasio indicated he could veto the bill following the September hearing.
“We’ve done everything that we could possibly get our hands on to help immigrant New Yorkers—including undocumented folks—but…I don’t believe it is legal,” de Blasio told WNYC radio at the time.

Mayor-elect Eric Adams, however, submitted testimony to the September hearing in favor of the bill. “In a democracy, nothing is more fundamental than the right to vote and to say who represents you and your community in elected office…Currently, almost one million New Yorkers are denied this foundational right.”

The legislation was first introduced two years ago, but had not yet gained traction due to the legal concerns.
