Absentee Ballot Problems.
These arrests reminded me of the alleged problems Black Voters/Citizens have

major point of discussion when I along with a local Pastor from Valdosta,
Georgia walked the streets to get a better understanding of what
Brooks County Voters had to go through during the last election.
