DeKalb Democrats Denounce Outside Partisan Attack Against DeKalb’s Right to Vote

DeKalb Democrats Denounce Outside Partisan Attack Against DeKalb’s Right to Vote

The DeKalb County Democratic Committee is pleased to know that the DeKalb Board of Registration and Elections has upheld the principles of democracy by rejecting the partisan attack on the eligibility of DeKalb voters.

On Tuesday, December 22, the Republican Party and a Texas-based group called “True the Vote” wasted DeKalb taxpayers’ time and resources by challenging the eligibility of over 50,000 DeKalb citizens to vote in next month’s U.S. Senate runoffs. This is another blatant attack on our democracy by Republicans who do not reside in our state and Republican leaders who refuse to condemn these attacks.

Democrat or Republican, DeKalb voters should be free to exercise their right to vote without fear of losing it due to unscrupulous attacks.

    DeKalb leadership makes history with rare Black leadership

    State Sen. Gloria Butler was selected by her pears to lead the Democratic caucus in the upper chamber. It is only the second time when caucuses in both Georgia chambers would be led by Black legislators.

    Having Black leadership at the top of the Democratic caucuses in the General Assembly better positions them to deal with racial injustice, said state Rep. James Beverly of Macon, who will be the House minority leader when the legislative session begins in January.

    Butler will replace outgoing Senate Democratic Leader Steve Henson, who, like Butler, is from Stone Mountain.
