#1 WAY YOU CAN IMPACT NOV. 6? REGISTERING (AND TURNING OUT) VOTERS (SEP 1 UPDATE)

*SEPTEMBER UPDATE* (STATEWIDE/METRO ATLANTA/ALBANY/MACON/ROME)

#1 WAY YOU CAN IMPACT NOV. 6? REGISTERING (AND TURNING OUT) VOTERS.

"ONE PERSON, ONE VOTE" - SO MULTIPLY YOUR IMPACT.

September 25 is National Voter Registration Day (https://nationalvoterregistrationday.org). It's also the last full month we have to register as many new voters as possible, before the Oct. 9 voter registration deadline in Georgia. It's getting down to the wire.

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