ATLANTA – This week, as municipalities across Georgia prepare for December runoff elections, the Democratic Party of Georgia will launch a full get out the vote effort to support Democratic candidates in Savannah, Valdosta, and cities around metro Atlanta including College Park, Johns Creek, and Smyrna.
“Making positive change for communities across Georgia starts with electing Democrats who will fight for our values at the local level,” said Nikema Williams, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Our party never took 2019 as an off year, which is why we’ve made early investments across Georgia to build our democracy all year round. In Savannah and Valdosta, and in cities across Metro Atlanta, voters have the chance to support strong local leadership and make history next Tuesday. Georgia Democrats know that democracy doesn’t start and stop in November, and we are ready to keep our organizing efforts going all year round until we turn Georgia a bright blue.”
The DPG is working closely with candidates and local parties to recruit volunteers, conduct voter contact campaigns, and continue direct outreach on voter protection issues. In addition to support from party headquarters in Atlanta, the DPG will deploy staff to Savannah and Valdosta to support local party get out the vote efforts.
“In a low turnout election like this one, we know that every vote is critical,” said Scott Hogan, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “The state party is working closely with our candidates and county leadership to deploy field and voter protection resources where they are most needed, so we can reach out to every voter and protect every vote.”
The Democratic Party of Georgia’s Voter Protection Hotline is available 24/7 to help voters understand and exercise their right to vote. Any Georgia voter can call the hotline at 888-730-5816.
Election Day is Tuesday, December 3rd.
