After First Week of Early Vote, Georgia Democrats Call For Rapid Improvements To Vote By Mail, Early Voting Process

May 22, 2020

Today, after reports that voters who submitted vote by mail applications months ago have yet to receive their ballots, Democratic Party of Georgia (DPG) voter protection director Saira Draper released the following statement: 

“It is extremely concerning that voters who have submitted vote by mail applications early have yet to receive their ballots, especially now that we are in the early vote period where expediency is required. Georgians are doing their part to protect our public health by voting by mail and early, but we need the Secretary of State to do right by voters and ensure that counties have the resources they need to catch up quickly. This is not optional — the longer we delay, the more we put the health of our voters and elections officials at risk.

“Georgia Democrats’ voter protection team will continue to fight for and serve Georgia voters as they navigate the voting process throughout this year. We strongly encourage all voters with questions or concerns to call our Voter Protection Hotline at 888-730-5816.”

The Democratic Party of Georgia has long been committed to protecting and empowering Georgia voters, and was the first state party in the nation to hire a full-time voter protection team. The DPG maintains a 24 hour voter protection hotline to serve all voters in the state at every step of the voting process. Any Georgia voter can contact the hotline for assistance casting their ballot by calling 888-730-5816.
