Here’s what Psaki has to say in the clip below.
“Well, let me just refute the first point you made. First, let me say on Colorado. Colorado allows you to register on Election Day. Colorado has voting-by-mail where they send to 100% of people in the state who are eligible applications to vote-by-mail. 94% of people in Colorado voted by mail in the 2020 election. And they also allow for a range of materials to provide even if they vote on Election Day for the limited number of people who vote on Election day.”
Psaki continued: “I think it’s important to remember the context here. The Georgia legislation is built on a lie. There was no widespread fraud in the 2020 election. Georgia’s top Republican election officials have acknowledged that repeatedly in interviews. What there was, however, was record-setting turnout especially by voters of color.
So, instead, what we’re seeing here is for politicians who didn’t like the outcome… They’re not changing their policies to win more votes, they’re changing the rules to exclude more voters. And we certainly see the circumstances as different. But ultimately, it’s up to Major League Baseball to decide where they’re holding their All-Star game.”
