This should never have happened, but don't make it out to be more than it is:
"The senior citizens agreed to get off the bus and cast their ballots later. Monday was the first day of in-person early voting in Georgia in the election for governor between Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp."
"Jefferson County's administrator said Tuesday that the county government considered the event at the senior center "political activity," which isn't allowed during county-sponsored events."
They were able to vote, but it was made harder for them than it needed to be. I incredibly doubt some clerk had a holy crap there are elderly black people going to vote! moment. I am much more inclined to believe they genuinely thought there was a rule break about county events being political since they were leaving as a group form a county run elderly care center.... More worried about lawsuits than anything else is my guess.
But then, I am not from that part of the country so it is entirely possible.
