Today, Georgia Democrats hosted an Early Voting press conference in Douglasville to mark the beginning of early voting in Georgia and encourage all Georgians to make a plan to vote in the Senate runoff election.
Douglas County is the first county to begin early voting in Georgia in the Senate runoff election and the only county to offer early voting on Tuesday, November 22. On Wednesday, November 23, early voting will be offered in Douglas County and DeKalb County only. Every county has early voting from Monday, November 28 through Friday, December 2, with several counties offering early voting sooner: at least 17 counties will offer early voting on Saturday, November 26, and at least 13 counties will offer early voting on Sunday, November 27.
Speakers encouraged every Georgia voter to make a plan to vote early in the crucial Senate runoff election by going to iWillVote.com/GA to find their county’s early voting days and locations, or by texting or calling the voter protection hotline at 888-730-5816.
“I’m proud to be here today standing in support of Reverend Raphael Warnock, because I know he has had our back and supported us for the last two years. We’ve been watching him fight for all of us since he got to the Senate to lower costs, to protect jobs, to secure funding for our schools, and to stand up for hardworking Georgia families in every corner of this state,” said Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “The choice is clear, Georgia: we’ve got to re-elect Reverend Warnock. And that starts with every single Georgian making a plan to vote. Early voting starts in every Georgia county by Monday, November 28 at the latest, but many counties are beginning sooner, including several right here in Metro Atlanta. Please, do not delay – this election is too important, and the stakes are just too high for our families. We need Reverend Warnock, and we can’t afford Herschel Walker.”
“Character is key. It’s about integrity when nobody is around. This is important, so everyone out there – make the right choice, get out and vote for Senator Warnock to take us forward for the next six years,” said Commissioner Kelly Robinson, Vice Chairman and District 2 Commissioner for the Douglas County Board of Commissioners.
“We have worked hard to ensure our voters have access to the ballot box. Whatever we have to do to do that – we will do that,” said Ingrid Landis-Davis, Chair of Douglas County Democrats. “We are working hard to make sure we not only have fair elections, but full access to the ballot box. We are all going to vote this morning.”
