The Georgia runoffs are today. What's next?


Phonebank for Georgia!

Join us TODAY as we phonebank with NARAL NYC Action to get out the vote for the Georgia Senate runoff elections! There are phonebanking shifts until 4pm EST today. No experience necessary; training will be provided. Join us!

The Georgia Senate runoff elections are today! An enormous thank you to all of the organizers and volunteers who have been calling, texting, and sending postcards to Georgia voters for the past few months. Since November, our community has raised an incredible nearly $39,000 for Rev. Warnock, Jon Ossoff, and 5 grassroots organizations on the ground in Georgia. If you or a friend is inspired to make one more last-minute contribution, you can do so here. Georgia organizers and staffers will need all the help they can get over the next couple of days, not only for Get Out The Vote efforts today, but also for ballot-curing and potential election-related lawsuits in the coming days and weeks (if November was any indication of what we can expect from the GOP). Buckle up for a fight! Dream big!
