Today, Georgia Democrats continued their Early Voting Tour in Columbus with a press conference to highlight the start of early voting this week, share important resources with voters, and encourage Georgians to make a plan to get to the polls.
Georgia Democrats’ Early Voting Tour is traveling across the entire state this week encouraging voters to make a plan to vote early in person now through November 4. Speakers are underscoring what’s at stake in the 2022 midterms and the importance of Georgians making their voices heard at the ballot box in this crucial election.
All 159 counties offer early in-person voting Monday through Saturday, and Muscogee County has Sunday voting. Georgians can visit iWillVote.com/Georgia and GeorgiaDemocrat.org/vote to find early voting locations and information, and call or text the Voter Protection hotline at 888-730-5816 with any questions.
“We all know how much is on the line this year, and I know how excited Georgians are to get out and vote for the future we want for our state. Here’s the good news: you don’t have to wait until election day, and in fact you shouldn’t wait! In-person early voting has already begun, and we’re here today to encourage all Georgians to head to the polls now,” said State Representative Carolyn Hugley. “Our health, our freedoms, and our safety are all on the ballot this year. With Republican extremism on the rise and Georgians facing unprecedented attacks on our rights – from reproductive rights to voting rights – we can’t afford to sit this election out, and we must vote Democrat up and down the ballot.”
“As we speak, folks here in Columbus and across the state are heading to polling places to cast their votes for a better Georgia, a brighter Georgia, a bluer Georgia. And we’re here to urge you to be one of them,” said State Rep. Teddy Reese. “Georgians are ready to elect Governor Stacey Abrams to help us build One Georgia, full of opportunity and possibility for all of us – a Georgia that makes generational investments in health care, education, and housing. Georgians are ready to re-elect Reverend Warnock to keep fighting for all Georgians and their families, lowering costs, creating good-paying jobs, and actually keeping his promises. Here in Columbus, we’re ready to send Congressman Sanford Bishop back to Washington to keep delivering results for the people of the Second District. So we’re here to remind Georgians that Election Day is the last day to vote, not the first.”
