Georgia accused of wrongfully purging nearly 200,000 from voter rolls

State officials in Georgia are alleged to have wrongfully purged approximately 200,000 people from its voter rolls in 2019, according to a new report commissioned by the American Civil Liberties Union’s (ACLU) Georgia chapter.

The report, which was conducted by the nonpartisan Palast Investigative Fund, focused on the Georgia secretary of state’s announcement in October 2019 that it was planning to remove roughly 313,000 citizens from the state’s voter rolls because they had either moved, died or not participated in recent elections.

Last Day To Register Oct. 5

Hands Up! Go Vote is not just a phase. It is one of the answers for community engagement.  Even though you voted in the primaries not all political races had a victor.   VOTING for general election starts October 12.  Due to the pandemic, it is recommended that if you vote by mail or absentee, mail your ballots by Oct. 20, to allow for delays in receipt and counting of your vote.   Avoid the rush.  Avoid the last-minute reminders.   Also, if you need a ride to the polls on November 3, contact us at info@naacpDekalb.org.  We will provide safe and social distance transportation.

Informed Georgians for Justice

Get updated information on political races at this site.

Informed Georgians for Justice is a non-partisan volunteer organization of concerned citizens. The organization aims to educate the voting public about the 2020 candidates for sheriff, district attorney and solicitor in all 159 counties in the state.  Many voters do not realize the impact these elected officials have on criminal justice issues.  IGJ informs citizens about the importance of voting in these elections. 

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.  The responses will be utilized by the Georgia NAACP, IGJ and many other organizations to educate voters about the policy positions of the Sheriff, District Attorney and Solicitor candidates on their ballot. 

This year there are two important elections. NAACP Branch Elections and the 2020 General Election. Here is where you will get all the information about both elections

2020 General Election

WHY VOTE?  White people vote more consistently than non-whites. Older people vote more consistently than younger people. Wealthier people vote more consistently than poorer people. More educated people vote more consistently than less educated people. And the sum total of all of this is that candidates that appeal to older, wealthier, more educated white people have a built-in advantage over candidates that appeal to all the other people.  Voter education can turn these stats around.
