She did take time to tweet something in that vein, "Big Business will boycott USA cities and states, but continue to do business with the Chinese Communist Party", but with no mention of the All-Star decision or the corporate boycotts related to it. "It is a decision that will have a bigger impact on countless small and minority-owned businesses in and around Atlanta, than the new election law ever will. It levels the playing field on voter I.D. requirements as well as streamlining election procedures".

"A lovely ballpark in a state whose voting system is created to enable safe, secure, and easy-to-use voting", Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser said in a tweet.

Colorado has a "non-strict" voter ID law for in-person voting.

"I'm trying to articulate clearly what he said", said Psaki, who added that the White House is not asking corporations to take action and that the White House view is that voting should be made easier, not harder.

Colorado also still relies on signature-matching to verify absentee ballots, a practice Georgia abandoned. Colorado does allow these "comfort teams" but prohibits them from giving water or snacks if they're wearing apparel associated with a political party, candidate or ballot issue, according to Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold. A joint statement from executives at almost 200 companies, including HP, Microsoft, PayPal, Target, Twitter, Uber and Under Armour, took aim at state legislation "threatening to make voting more difficult" and said "elections are not improved" when lawmakers impose new barriers to voting. Fulton County, for example, says they will go from having 38 drop boxes in 2020 to just eight in the future. The Washington Post reported that because the costs of voting are higher for minorities, they are the largest beneficiaries of early voting opportunities. This is true, Colorado has fewer days.

Colorado automatically sends absentee ballots to all registered voters; Georgia sends the ballots only upon request in order to prevent sending ballots to the wrong address or to those no longer eligible to vote. The Georgia legislation is built on a lie.

Republicans pushed the changes through despite officials' repeated affirmations that Georgia's recent elections were free of fraud, rebuking theories that Trump's allies embraced. "And what there was, however, was record-setting turnout, especially by voters of color", Psaki said. What is clear, is Colorado's voting system is very different from Georgia's and the criticisms comparing the two should have context.
