Take Action Right Now
Sign up to be a poll worker
We're working with Power the Polls to recruit as many poll workers as possible. With Election Day less than 50 days away (and Early Voting starting already in some states), elections officials will be deciding in the next few weeks how many early voting and election day polling locations they can open. Which means we need people signing up right now!

Volunteer with the New Georgia Project
The New Georgia Project is working to build power with and increase the civic participation of the New Georgia Majority—Black, Latinx, AAPI, and young Georgians—and other historically marginalized communities through nonpartisan voter registration, organizing, and advocacy on the issues important to our communities. Find out how you can help them register new voters, get out the vote, and much more!
Vote Save the Senate Fund
If we can win 52 Senate seats in 2022, Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema’s refusal to change the filibuster won’t matter. We can elect a Democratic majority that takes decisive action on raising the minimum wage, forgiving student debt, fighting climate change, protecting reproductive freedom, and more. We need to protect the four most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in purple states and support challengers in winnable states. You can start today by donating here to directly support eight of the most competitive Senate races of 2022.

since you last voted…
Since 2020, it’s become harder to cast your ballot in Georgia. Here are the changes you need to pay attention to:
When making a plan to vote…
- You now have to include an ID number from a Georgia-issued ID (driver’s or identification card) when applying for an absentee ballot.
- You’ll also need to include that ID number (or the last four digits of your SSN) on the outer envelope (it’ll be covered when it’s sealed, don’t worry).
- Early voting is now the two Saturdays before Election Day, only. (Some places may also be open on Sunday – check your county website for details.)
- There’s now a deadline for requesting your absentee ballot: eleven days before the election (we did the math – that’s October 28th.)
- Third party groups that help distribute absentee ballot applications will need special forms that indicate that it didn’t come from the government. They also can’t pre-fill anything or fill it out for you anymore.
When casting your vote…
- It’s now a felony to return someone else’s absentee ballot (with exceptions for the disabled and others with caretakers).
- Drop boxes are now legal in Georgia – but check your county website for info on the locations and hours, since those may have changed since 2020.
- It’s now illegal to take a photo of a completed ballot or vote marker. (Why?)
- It’s now illegal to observe someone else completing their ballot.
- There’s now a hotline that goes to the secretary of state’s office where you can report suspected voter intimidation, fraud, or illegal election activities. (No way this gets abused… right?)
