POWERING THE VOTE IN GEORGIA
Micah 6:8 And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
The injustices and insecurities around voter suppression and obstruction have many voters concerned about the future and integrity of the African American voting bloc. Since 2020, voting laws have drastically changed and are far stricter making it more complicated in many states for brown and black people to vote.
It's time to put it all on the line for Georgia. The Georgia Senate race is officially heading to a runoff in December - and we still face the overwhelming obstacle of voter suppression tactics that specifically target our communities to reduce turnout. Black voters in Georgia are the most powerful voters in America right now.
Now, it's time to show up for Georgia. This runoff is critical, and we have to show up to keep democracy at the forefront. You don't have to live in Georgia to help boost Black voter turnout in the runoffs. Let's make history - again.
Last Day to Request Absentee Ballots: November 25
Last Day to Return Absentee Ballot/Vote in Person: December 6
Any voter registered in Georgia can vote absentee by mail. We urge you to request your mail-in ballot and get it back to your county registrar's office as soon as possible. The voted ballot must be received by your county registrar no later than the close of the
polls on Election Day.
Any voter registered in Georgia may vote absentee in person. Simply visit your county or municipality early-voting site, fill out the application, and present one of the permitted forms of photo ID. As Election Day approaches, your county may have multiple early voting sites and even extended hours.
Your participation in this runoff is critical. On Election Day, you must vote at your assigned precinct and present a photo ID. Be sure to check your precinct location.
