Statement of Common Cause Georgia Executive Director Aunna Dennis
We continue to be concerned about issues voters reported to us during last month’s primary election. That included confusion about newly-assigned polling places, inaccurate sample ballots, and unreliable information from the state’s My Voter Page. These stem from the anti-voter law passed this year which has made it harder for some of us to vote this. That’s why we’re urging Georgians to make their plans now about how they’ll vote and encourage their friends, family, and neighbors to vote in this and every election.
We in Georgia don’t have to figure out these new voting rules alone. Volunteers and staff at the nonpartisan Election Protection hotline at 866-OUR-VOTE will answer questions from anyone who has them.
Our democracy works best when it includes everyone’s voice, regardless of income, zip code, race or gender. That’s why I am urging all voters in Georgia to cast their ballots so that our “government by the people” really does include all people.
