Election Day is November 6th! Check out these tips before you go to the polls!

Who is running?
Do you know who’s on the ballot? Have you read the amendments?  A sample ballot can be found here.

Do your research
You still have time to research the candidates and amendments on the ballot. We know you’re passionate about education in Georgia. If you’re interested in knowing more where the candidates stand on education issues, check out this questionnaire from our friends at GCSA.

Know your polling location
Before you vote tomorrow, double check your polling location. By checking out GeorgiaCAN’s Civic Center. Remember polls open from 7 am to 7 pm. If you’re in line when the polls close, make sure to stay in line to vote. Make sure to bring your photo I.D.

Make a plan to vote
Think about when you’re going to vote! Ask yourself these important questions:

Are you going before work? During lunch? After work? How are you going to get there? Are you driving? Taking public transit?  Maybe walking or biking? Are you bring a friend?

Uber and Lyft are offering rides to the polls.

A plan ensures you will actually vote.

Like you, I haven’t voted yet. Here’s my plan for Tuesday:

I’m voting on Election Day. I’m going at 7 am before work. I’m riding with my roommate to our polling location in North Decatur. I know who I’m voting for and how I’m voting on the amendment. I’m bringing my photo I.D. which is required by state law. I’m going #postthepeach as soon as I’m done. 

Now you’re ready to vote!

After you vote here’s a couple of things to do:

  • Show off that peach! Make sure to post your Georgia voter sticker on social media! Use the hashtag #postthepeach.
  • Check out who won? You can keep track of the results starting at 7pm here.
  • Keep engaged with the those that won the election. Sign up to join GeorgiaCAN’s Alerts.

We hope these tips help you prepare for tomorrow! If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to steven.quinn@gacan.org.
