Your Voice, Your Vote: Make It Count Tomorrow in the Georgia Primary Election

Updated: May 26

Dear Fellow Georgians,


Tomorrow is a critical day for our state and our nation. As we stand on the brink of the Georgia Primary Election, the Georgia NAACP urges each and every one of you to exercise your most powerful civic duty: voting.



Why Your Vote Matters


Voting is more than just a right; it is a responsibility. Our forebears fought tirelessly for the freedoms we enjoy today, and it is incumbent upon us to honor their legacy by participating in the democratic process. Each vote cast is a step toward shaping a more just and equitable society.


What’s at Stake


This primary election is pivotal. It is not just about selecting candidates for various offices but about setting the course for policies and leadership that will impact our communities for years to come. From education and healthcare to criminal justice reform and economic equity, the choices we make at the ballot box will have lasting consequences.


How to Prepare


1. **Know Your Polling Place**: Verify your polling location. Polling places can change, so ensure you know where to go. You can find your polling location [here](https://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov/MVP/mvp.do).


2. **Review the Ballot**: Familiarize yourself with the candidates and issues on the ballot. The more informed you are, the better choices you can make. Sample ballots are available on the [Georgia Secretary of State’s website](https://sos.ga.gov).


3. **Bring Necessary Identification**: Georgia law requires a valid photo ID to vote. Accepted forms of ID include a Georgia driver’s license, state ID card, or a passport. Make sure to have this ready to avoid any issues at the polls.


4. **Plan Your Vote**: Decide what time you will vote and how you will get there. Whether you are voting before work, during a lunch break, or after school drop-off, planning ahead ensures you won’t miss your chance.


Assistance and Support


If you encounter any problems at the polls, such as difficulties with your registration or voter intimidation, the Georgia NAACP is here to help. You can call our Voter Protection Hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE for immediate assistance.


Spread the Word


Encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to vote. Use your social media platforms, make phone calls, and talk to people in your community. Every vote counts, and collective action can drive significant change.


Reflecting on Our Mission


The mission of the Georgia NAACP is to secure the political, educational, social, and economic equality of rights in order to eliminate race-based discrimination and ensure the health and well-being of all persons. Voting is a cornerstone of this mission. When we vote, we demand to be heard and push for progress that benefits everyone.


Closing Thoughts


Tomorrow is more than just a day to cast a ballot; it is a day to affirm our commitment to democracy, justice, and equality. Your vote is your voice. Let’s make it heard loud and clear.


See you at the polls!


In solidarity,


Gerald Griggs

Georgia NAACP
