Early voting starts October 12. Often overlooked, municipal and special elections are of tremendous importance to the everyday lives of Georgians.
The nonpartisan #PostThePeach Challenge encourages Georgia voters to participate in upcoming municipal and special elections, especially during the early voting period. The Challenge is supported through a coalition of county election officials, civic engagement organizations and individual voters.
After casting their ballots, Georgia voters are challenged to post “selfies” wearing their state-issued “I am Georgia Voter” peach sticker. Using the #PostThePeach hashtag, challenge friends and neighbors to also exercise their right to vote.
Social media graphics and more are available for download from the #PostThePeach 2015 Toolkit.
Early voting begins October 12 in Georgia cities and counties with elections on November 3. Early voting saves time and is more convenient for voters with busy, modern lifestyles. But even more important, it allows for time for a voter to correct any unforeseen problem that may occur at the polls.
Georgia voters will have three weeks to vote early prior to Election Day. In addition, voters can cast their ballots by mail and on Election Day.
To learn more about elections on the ballot, as well as their polling location and the early voting hours and locations in their jurisdiction, Georgia voters can log on to the Secretary of State’s Georgia My Voter Page at http://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/.
