Common Cause Georgia Honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. King would remind us that “disfranchisement is the main instrument for perpetuating racial injustice.” The lines at Georgia’s polling places, back in June, showed the entire country that racial disparities in voting access are still real.

Statement of Aunna Dennis, Executive Director of Common Cause Georgia — November 10, 2020

A record number of Georgia’s voters participated in this election, despite COVID 19. Just as in previous elections, the decisions of ‘The People’ must be respected and accepted. We need to move forward and ensure that the runoffs on December 1 and January 5 go as smoothly as possible.

In pandemic conditions, sending absentee ballot applications to voters is one of the best ways to ensure their ability to vote safely.

Voting & Elections 06.9.2020

Statement by Aunna Dennis, Executive Director, Common Cause Georgia

The obstacles that Georgia’s voters have faced in this election are simply unacceptable. It’s also unacceptable that the officials entrusted with administering the elections have spent the day dodging blame, rather than accepting responsibility. Georgia’s voters deserve better.
