Apple CEO Tim Cook recently discussed the American voting system in a statement provided to Axios, saying that voting should be “easier than ever,” in the modern age. Cook has joined the chorus of corporate leaders attacking Georgia’s election law.
Axios reports that Apple CEO Tim Cook recently spoke to the publication about the U.S. voting system and has joined others in condemnation of Georgia’s new voting law.
Cook told Axios:
The right to vote is fundamental in a democracy. American history is the story of expanding the right to vote to all citizens, and Black people, in particular, have had to march, struggle and even give their lives for more than a century to defend that right.
Apple believes that, thanks in part to the power of technology, it ought to be easier than ever for every eligible citizen to exercise their right to vote.
