Republican Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed legislation revamping Georgia’s election rules into law last week after the bill passed in both houses of the Georgia legislature. Critics are likening the new voting law to Jim Crow, but just how accurate is that description?

Protesters had gathered outside the Georgia State Capitol when Kemp signed Senate Bill 202 into law Thursday, calling the new law “Jim Crow 2.0” and claiming it would disenfranchise voters. Democratic Georgia state Rep. Park Cannon was arrested for interrupting the signing ceremony.
