Be A Poll Watcher!

Our primary season is rapidly approaching. In addition to picking our presidential nominee, most of us will be using our new voting machines for the first time. There is a lot to learn about how the public interacts with these machines. We need to have boots on the ground across Georgia and across DeKalb taking notes and sharing issues that crop up with the party. Volunteer to be a poll watcher! The Democratic Party of Georgia is accepting volunteers for a number of critical roles right now. Sign up here!
