Of course, I think you should vote Democratic all the way and, most certainly, vote for me! But that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about actually getting your vote in to the people who will count it. Oh, yeah, that little detail!
First things first:
- Let’s make sure your name is still on Georgia’s voter rolls. I know you think it is, but check anyway. The Secretary of State’s office deletes (purges) names every year of people who have died, moved, or just did not respond to a postcard they sent out. If you voted in the last election or renewed your GA driver’s license, you are probably good, but check anyway. They do make mistakes sometimes. mvp.sos.ga.gov
- If you need to register, change your name, address, or just refresh your memory on where you are supposed to go to vote in person on Election Day, the same website will help you out. mvp.sos.ga.gov
- Remember: you MUST be registered where you reside and pay your taxes. It is illegal to use somebody else’s address. That is called Voter Fraud. You can be fined and/or go to jail for doing that.
- You MUST use the place where they tell you to go vote. (It is called a precinct.) The only exceptions are: A. If you use mail-in ballots, or B. early voting, in which case you go to that designated place. They will be ENFORCING that law this year. So be informed and get yourself to the CORRECT PLACE.
- Early voting for the primaries starts on May 2 and runs until Friday, May 20.
- If you are using Mail-in Ballots, pay close attention to the instructions, and make absolutely certain that the ballot will arrive on time.
- Election Day is May 24.
The Democratic Party is encouraging early voting this election season.
The Primaries are important because they allow voters to choose the best candidates to represent them in the General Election in November. Please do not discount them as being trivial because they are not. Get to know your local candidates. Ask them to come out and tell you their stories. Then decide who you would prefer to represent you.
My name is Ellen Wright and I want to be the State Senator for District 29. I will represent all of the citizens of this District, not just the Democrats. I will listen to YOUR issues and bring your voice to the General Assembly in Atlanta. There are so many issues that our area needs to have addressed and we have been ignored. Our schools, healthcare, and infrastructure are just three of the things that I want to work on. Please, can I count on your vote? And support my campaign with your financial donation at actblue.com. Just type in my name in the search box at the top and it will take you right to my page. I depend on grassroots donors like you, so just $25 will help tremendously.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Together, we will all win.
Ellen Wright, candidate for Senate D29
