#1 Way You Can Impact Nov. 6? Registering Voters. "One Person, One Vote" - So Multiply Your Impact. (July 4th Update)
It's July 4th week. And there's little more patriotic than our registering as many new Georgia voters possible - a demographic on which the November general elections will turn.
Come volunteer with the organizations below doing this critical work (as well as canvassing and voter ID assistance), in July. Courtesy of our friends at New Georgia Project, DeKalb (Decatur) voter registration volunteers, Spread the Vote, Georgia Coalition for the People's Agenda, New American Pathways, Feminist Women's Health Center, Georgia Equality, Cobb voter registration volunteers, Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta, and Let America Vote.
(Or, if you can't come out in July: challenge yourself to check in with at least ONE of your friends, family, co-workers, etc., to VERIFY if they're registered to vote. If they don't know for sure, help them check their status at: https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do.)
