New voting laws are on the books in Georgia, but not without protest. Republican Governor Brian Kemp signed the controversial measure to tighten voting requirements in a closed-door ceremony Thursday.

Georgia state troopers then arrested a state lawmaker when she knocked on the statehouse door as Kemp signed the restrictive bill. It requires a driver’s license number or some other ID for those who want to vote absentee.

The changes moved through the Republican-controlled legislature after President Biden became the first Democrat to win the state since 1992.
