Georgia Votes Declares: Don’t Bother My Ballot

On the heels of a string of proposed legislation that aims to roll back Georgia voters’ access to the ballot, Georgia Votes held a press conference demanding fair and transparent election laws for the state. The collaborative rejected baseless claims of voter fraud and emphasized a need to expand, rather than suppress, the voting rights of communities across the state.

Georgia Legislature considers bill to ‘undermine the absentee voting system created by then-Governor Sonny Perdue’ in 2005

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.

Common Cause GA calls for immediate resignation of Reps Allen, Carter, Clyde, Greene, Hice and Loudermilk

In the wake of Wednesday’s insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, Common Cause Georgia is calling for the immediate resignation of Representatives Rick W. Allen, Earl L. "Buddy" Carter, Andrew S. Clyde, Marjorie Taylor Greene, Jody B. Hice and Barry Loudermilk after they voted to overturn the will of the people, failed to accept the results of the 2020 presidential election, and played a clear role in spreading disinformation around the election, leading to the violence.

ELECTION UPDATE: Georgia elections include numerous failsafe systems

Our November 3rd ballots were counted three times, and the outcome was still the same. It’s time for the people who have been questioning that outcome to stop spreading the seeds of doubt, and to stop fundraising on the doubts they have sowed.

Common Cause Georgia Statement on Voter Challenges

We are particularly mindful of votes cast by members of our military, military families and the diplomatic corps: these are people serving our country who maintain the right to vote even if they are not presently living in Georgia. In this important election, every valid vote must be counted – even if it has been challenged, and even if results take days to compile.
