MACON – Today, the Democratic Party of Georgia held a press conference at a Macon ballot drop box with Macon-Bibb County Commissioner-Elect Seth Clark and Georgia House Minority Leader James Beverly to highlight options for voting by mail in the runoff elections.
Speakers reminded voters to request their absentee ballots, emphasized the convenience of using ballot drop boxes to return absentee ballots, and discussed what is at stake in this election. They also encouraged Georgians to make a plan to vote early for Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock by visiting georgiademocrat.org/vote for information on where, when, and how to vote.

“There are many ways to vote in this election. The easiest way to vote is by mail. If you haven’t already, please request your mail-in ballot today and make sure your friends, family and neighbors do the same,” said Macon-Bibb County Commissioner-Elect Seth Clark. “Once you receive the ballot you can return it two ways. If you don’t live in the county in which you’re registered to vote, you can simply drop it in the mail the same way you would any standard piece of mail. If you do live in the county in which you are registered to vote, we highly encourage you to drop off your ballot at one of the secure drop boxes located in your county at whatever time is convenient for you.”
“On January 5th, Georgia has the chance to take back the Senate for working families across this country and send leaders to Washington who will put people first. So make your plan to vote early and then make sure everyone you know has a plan to vote,” said Minority Leader James Beverly. “We can’t afford to sit this one out.”
