Voter Mobilization

A general election is a political voting election where most or all the members of a given political body are chosen. These elections are typically held for a nation, state or territory’s primary legislative body. Occasionally, dates for general elections may align with dates of elections within different administrative divisions, such as a local election.

Georgia’s Nov. 8 general election will decide races for the U.S. Senate and House, state Senate and House, governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state and other state executive offices – as well as several state high courts.

Voting is a critical way to be civically engaged and help shape the future of education in Atlanta. The upcoming general elections allow you to let your voice be heard! 

Make sure you are registered to vote so you can make your voice heard! The deadline to register for this election is Oct. 10. If you’re not registered by that date, you won’t be able to vote on Nov. 8.
