Georgia Democrats’ Early Voting Tour Kicks Off in Macon

October 17, 2022

Today, Georgia Democrats kicked off their Early Voting Tour in Macon with a press conference to highlight the start of early voting this week, share important resources with voters, and encourage Georgians to make a plan to get to the polls. 

Georgia Democrats’ Early Voting Tour will travel across the entire state this week encouraging voters to make a plan to vote early in person between October 17 and November 4. Speakers will underscore what’s at stake in the 2022 midterms and the importance of Georgians making their voices heard at the ballot box in this crucial election. 

All 159 counties offer early in-person voting Monday through Saturday, and some counties have Sunday voting. Georgians can visit and to find early voting locations and information, and call or text the Voter Protection hotline at 888-730-5816 with any questions.

“The day we’ve been waiting for is finally here – early voting has begun across the state, and it’s time to hit the ballot box and make our voices heard in this crucial election. We all know what’s on the ballot this year. Voting rights. Reproductive rights. The safety of our communities. Generational investments in health care, education, and good-paying jobs all across the state,” said State Representative Miriam Paris. “In-person early voting is a quick and easy way to vote. You can vote early in person Monday through Saturday, from now until November 4th, with some locations even having Sunday voting, including the Macon-Bibb County Board of Elections Office this coming Sunday. Make a plan to vote on a day and time that works best for you.”

“Voting is one of the simplest, yet most powerful, actions we can take to improve our lives and our communities. And with early voting, it is even simpler. The Voter Protection Hotline is here to answer any and all questions about how, when, and where to cast your ballot – if Georgians have any questions or issues with casting a ballot, they can call or text the voter protection hotline at 888-730-5816,” said Courtney Driver, Chair of Houston County Democrats and candidate for House District 146. “There is so much at stake in this election. We must defeat Brian Kemp to put an end to his extremism. Under Kemp’s tenure, six hospitals have closed, women no longer have control over their own reproductive health care decisions, and it’s easier for criminals to carry guns on our streets. And we must defeat Herschel Walker, whose record of lies, scams, bad policies, and disturbing conduct makes it abundantly clear that he isn’t ready to represent us in the U.S. Senate.”

“Starting right now, Georgians have the chance to vote for champions for their rights up and down the ballot. We’ve got to re-elect Reverend Warnock and Congressman Sanford Bishop, who are leading the fight for all Georgians in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House to lower costs, expand access to health care, and protect and grow good-paying jobs. We’ve got to elect Stacey Abrams as Georgia’s next governor, who is fighting for One Georgia where we all thrive. We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest in health care, housing, education and earning a good living, and Stacey Abrams is the governor to make it happen,” said State Senator David Lucas. “From the top of the ballot all the way down, Democrats are ready to bring change to our state, but only if we all vote. So we’re here to remind Georgians that Election Day is the last day to vote, not the first!”
