Is only water restricted in Georgia voting lines?

How 'bout if Coca Cola, in an attempt to show support for voters, distributed some other Coke Products, such as Powerade, to all those in line to vote.

4. If there were more places to vote, as there should be, there wouldn't be long lines

and waiting for hours to cast your ballot.

9. THIS

I can't help but think this is a distraction to the underlying problem. Nobody needs to be rehydrated if they are in line for a reasonable amount of time.

5. I'd like to see insulated lunch bags handed out to folks before they get in line.

Water, Gatorade, power bar, yogurt, bag of nuts, cheese crackers, etc... all kept cool with an ice-pak. This is small potatoes, however, since some really big names are going to descend on Georgia with food and water that will make my lunch bags look like child's play.

12. Any gift.

Reading down in the bill, voters in line can still drink from water fountains, if they're miraculously still there.

8. Does it restrict access to a potty?

People can carry in as much possible their food and drink but can not carry in a way to go potty. How do they accommodate long 10 hr. lines with respect to potty functions?

10. My guess is if you're voting while black, you gotta suffer.

13. The voter can carry all the water, Coke, Pepsi, etc., they want. And the way the law is written,

I think any group that is not trying to solicit/influence voters would have an argument in the unlikely event they were arrested. The Poll workers can hand out water too.

Also, I think the way the law is written, Democrats could throw a big party 150 feet from the Polls on the exit side.

14. A loophole: the law specifically states "No person..."

Hey R2-D2! How'd you like to hand out drinking water to voters? The law specifically says you can, if it's free.

(e) This Code section shall not be construed to prohibit a poll officer from distributing
materials, as required by law, which are necessary for the purpose of instructing electors
or from distributing materials prepared by the Secretary of State which are designed solely
for the purpose of encouraging voter participation in the election being conducted or from
making available self-service water from an unattended receptacle to an elector waiting in
line to vote."

15. Well now, that sounds pretty easy

Get the poll workers to set up long tables next to the line, and put bottles of water on them.
