ICYMI: Democratic Party of Georgia Hosts Get Out the Vote Programming Ahead of Election Day

January 4, 2021

In the final weekend ahead of Election Day, The Democratic Party of Georgia hosted a slate of events to reach voters in every corner of the state and every community to get out the vote. Throughout the weekend, our organizing team held over 1000 canvass launches statewide, with thousands of volunteers signed up to knock doors and talk to voters across Georgia about making their voices heard on Tuesday. From phone banks and tele-town halls to canvass kick offs, Georgia Democrats reminded voters to make a plan to drop off their absentee ballot in a drop box or make a plan to vote for Jon Ossoff and Reverend Raphael Warnock on Election Day.
