Today’s Action: Early Voting in Georgia begins MONDAY – Get Out The Vote!

Four of Georgia’s most populated counties have drastically cut the number of early voting locations for the upcoming runoff election on January 5th, which will determine both of Georgia’s U.S. Senate seats. The result is expected to particularly affect Black and Latinx voters, who are most impacted by the voting location closures. This, on top of the miles-long lines we saw in November when more locations were open, reeks of classic racist GOP voter suppression.

Early voting begins this Monday, December 14. With familiar locations closed, and traditionally lower turnout for special elections (especially by Democrats), Georgia’s voters will need extra support getting the information they need to successfully vote and flip the U.S. Senate for Democrats.

SPANISH SPEAKERS! Sign up for Fair Fight’s Latinx Weekend of Action to call (or text) Latinx Georgia voters and share critical early voting and ballot request instructions to GOTV for the January 5th U.S. Senate runoff elections.

EVERYONE! No matter where you live, you can help GOTV in Georgia and flip the U.S. Senate. Search Swing Left’s events for phone-banking AND in-person canvassing this weekend and beyond.

Flipping both Georgia Senate seats and winning the Senate for Democrats is absolutely critical for moving forward the progressive change we want to see under a Biden/Harris administration.

Georgia has 7.6 million registered voters and over 5 million of them turned out to hand Biden 16 electoral votes. We can absolutely produce the same results for the Senate runoff elections and kick Mitch McConnell out of the Majority Leader seat if we put in the same GOTV volunteer efforts as we did to defeat Trump.

So ask yourself if you’d like to see a Democratic Senate or another two years of Mitch McConnell’s obstruction…and then sign up to Get Out The Vote for Georgia!

Spanish speakers: phone-bank or text-bank with Latinx voters THIS WEEKEND with Fair Fight! Everyone else: search Swing Left’s events for phone-banking AND in-person canvassing volunteer opportunities to GOTV in Georgia in the next few days!

PS — Please don’t forget to sign the petition demanding Congress pass a relief package with stimulus checks now, and check out the brilliant “Don’t Think of an Elephant” by George Lakoff — a quick read that contains the ultimate keys for Democrats to win elections — and arguments.
