The University of Georgia is receiving waves of criticism after canceling on-campus voting due to concerns about COVID-19 just weeks after it decided to ignore the state's rising infection rate and restart college football, CNN reported

After 24 hours of relentless bashing from people online, the university backed off of their decision and said officials had spoken with the Georgia secretary of state's office on Thursday about using a facility for on-campus voting, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
