Time to Choose Our Candidates

Today is primary day for all Georgia Democrats, as well as Election Day for local candidates for Mayor, City Council (odd-numbered + At-Large 10), Board of Education (even-numbered) and Judge of State Court for Columbus-Muscogee.

In the local election, we have not made a decision to endorse a candidate, but we recommend that you make an educated decision on the candidates. We hope that those who you elect will be open to progressive changes for our city, and that they will be honest in their campaigning and tenure.

In the statewide election, we again ask that you make your voice heard about who should not only be our party’s nominees for statewide races, but who should best lead and represent us after November 6! We are running for a majority of the General Assembly this time, and we will have candidates for both Senate seats in Columbus.

But finally, VOTE! This is the time and place where you make your voice heard on who should not only be our city’s leaders, but also who should go to the November election to lead the state. It’s your voice, your vote. Today is a crucial day to express yourself.

If you need to know which precinct you are registered in, go to www.mvp.sos.ga.gov and enter your information to find your precinct address and sample ballot. (If you’re interested, here’s a map of precincts in Columbus.)

If you need a ride to get to the polls, the Urban League of Greater Columbus, with the IMA, NAACP Columbus GA Branch, and Davis Broadcasting is offering a free “Roll to the Polls“. Call 706-322-6840 for a pickup between 7am and 7pm today.

If you are having trouble voting or feel intimidated at the polls, call 866-OUR-VOTE anytime today from 7 am to 7 pm. The hotline is operated by the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.

We hope you make your voice heard and make a change for Columbus and Georgia today.

Go Vote! Go Stacey! Go Georgia Democrats!
