Georgia modeled voting station food and drink ban on New York law
Georgia modeled its election integrity bill on a New York state law, a state senator said Monday.
The provision prohibiting individuals from distributing food and drinks within 150 feet of a polling station was based off of New York’s election law, Republican state Sen. Mike Dugan said.
“We copied that provision from New York,” Dugan told the National Review.
New York’s state election law prohibits non-election officials from giving “any meat, drink, tobacco, refreshment or provision to or for any person,” unless the gift in question has a retail value of less than one dollar.
