#1 Way You Can Impact Nov. 6? Registering Voters. "One Person, One Vote" - So Multiply Your Impact.

It's the official start of summer, and we have a little over 100 days (110 to be exact, before the Tue, Oct 9 voter registration deadline) to register all the new Georgia voters possible - a demographic on which the November general elections will turn. Come volunteer with the organizations below doing this critical work, in June and July.
