October 14, 2016

Rep. John Lewis and Rep. Hank Johnson to encourage supporters to vote early

Atlanta, GA – On Monday, October 17, on the first day Georgians can early vote, Congressman John Lewis and Congressman Hank Johnson will campaign for Hillary Clinton. Congressman Lewis will join Fulton County Chairman John Eaves and State Representative Park Cannon to host a Millennial March starting at Nelson Street Bridge and marching to the polls with college students. Earlier in the morning, Congressman Hank Johnson, Commissioner Mereda Johnson, and fellow democrats will head to the polls with supporters and cast their ballots.

“The vote is precious, almost sacred. It is the most powerful tool or instrument in a democratic society,”Congressman Lewis said. “For more than 50 years, I have marched so that every person can exercise their right to vote. I’ve been beaten, left bloody and unconscious, all so that each and every one of us can be full participants in our democracy.

“On Monday, I will join dozens of young people who are doing their part by marching to the ballot box and exercising their right to vote. In all my years, I’ve never seen an election like this one. It is more important now than ever before for Georgia’s young people to march to the polls so that generations yet unborn can continue to fulfill the promise of America.”
