Ways You Can Help

#1 WAY YOU CAN IMPACT NOV. 6? REGISTERING (AND TURNING OUT) VOTERS. "ONE PERSON, ONE VOTE" - SO MULTIPLY YOUR IMPACT. (OCT 2 UPDATE)

*OCTOBER VOLUNTEER OPPS UPDATE* (statewide/metro Atlanta + Augusta/Commerce/Macon)

#1 WAY YOU CAN IMPACT NOV. 6? REGISTERING (AND TURNING OUT) VOTERS. "ONE PERSON, ONE VOTE" - SO MULTIPLY YOUR IMPACT.

Tuesday, Oct. 9 is the voter registration deadline. And Tuesday, Nov. 6 - only four weeks later - is the election.

Come volunteer with the organizations below doing critical voter registration – as well as GOTV/postcarding, voter ID assistance, and rides to the polls – in October and November.

And as always, if you can't come out: challenge yourself to check in with at least ONE of your friends, family, co-workers, people you meet, etc., to VERIFY if they're registered to vote. If they don't know for sure, help them check their status at: www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do.

If you'd like to join a metro Atlanta group of volunteers, please fill out this form at https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSfCmbV7NGhec4LMTd…/viewform and request to join the Facebook group Metro Atlanta Voter Registration Volunteers!; if you're outside of metro Atlanta, please PM Anne Isenhower or Martha Shockey on Facebook.
