Empowering Black Men Through Voting

Empowering Black Men Through Voting

We know, now more than ever, the political power that lies dormant within Black men. This why we, DeKalb Democrats and the Black Caucus of the Young Democrats of Georgia, are doing everything we can to activate Black men into action this election cycle. This Monday, we will have a conversation with panelist Reverend Raphael Warnock (candidate for Senate), Daniel Blackman (candidate for Public Service Commissioner), Councilman Khalid (candidate for mayor of South Fulton), and Mondale Robinson (founder of the Black Male Voter Project) Monday, 8 pm via Facebook Live and Zoom. The forum will discuss a wide range of topics from public health (COVID-19) and safety, voting rights and generational wealth building in addition to how the Democratic platform will work on the behalf of Black men.

Support fair elections: Serve on DeKalb Voter Review Panel

Support fair elections: Serve on DeKalb Voter Review Panel

Voter Review Panel is a team consisting of Democrats, Republicans, and non-partisan members working together to judge voter intent for unclear paper ballots.

During the 2020 primary election, DeKalb County processed more absentee ballots than usual. We expect even more for the 2020 general election. Therefore, we need extra help making sure all ballots are properly counted in a timely manner. Your volunteer efforts will help ensure that DeKalb is able to report its vote accurately and promptly.

A final schedule will be created and shared in October. Fill out this form or contact Elizabeth Burns if you have any questions before committing at lizroseburns@gmail.com.

DeKalb County Elections Call to Action

DeKalb County Elections Call to Action

In response to public outcry over the November 2018 mid-term election, DeKalb County Commissioners hired consultants to do a process review of the Elections Department. We now have the consultants’ report that addresses the problems that DeKalb voters face, and recommends solutions for avoiding the problems in the future. Implementing these recommendations before the general election is critical. However, the DeKalb County Elections Department has been slow to adjust and has pushed back on implementing the consultants’ recommendations.

The DeKalb County Board of Elections must immediately implement the following recommendations in time to meet the November 3rd election challenges:
