Currently, IGJ is conducting a voter education project sponsored by the Georgia NAACP.  IGJ is gathering information through a candidate questionnaire containing approximately 35 yes/no questions regarding specific criminal justice issues. The questions presented were determined with input from numerous organizations with diverse perspectives.
