voter id requirements in Mexico ?

Isn't a state issued drivers license or ID card sufficient to vote in Georgia under the new laws?
My understanding is that the new voter ID card is only required if no other ID
is available.
Just trying to understand what all the fuss is about.

Georgia resident here again.
The "fuss" with the new voting law goes WAY beyond voter ID. In spite of the roadblocks set up to make it more difficult to vote, the citizens of my state worked their way through them and turned out in record numbers, resulting in Georgia going "blue" for the first time since 1992.

The state legislature embraced the Big Lie that "Georgia's election was stolen" and got busy. They passed a law shortening early voting periods, removing autonomy of county election boards and replacing them with hand-picked cronies if desired, making absentee (mail-in) voting more difficult, removing absentee ballot boxes, allowing one individual to challenge/slow down an unlimited numbers of legitimate voter registrations in a voting district, and my personal favorite, making it a crime to pass another voter a bottle of water.

So, yeah, the "fuss" is earned.
