50 Day Countdown Begins. Here’s What You Need to Know.
September 17th, 2018. We are officially 50 days away from Election Day.
The day we’ve been counting down to, working hard toward, and holding on to hope for is almost here. Can you believe it?
As we approach Election Day, there are some key dates you need to know:
Next Tuesday, Georgia’s WIN List hosts our “Stand With WINning Women” candidate rally. This is our biggest event of the year to celebrate and support the 36 women running for statewide or legislative office who have earned our endorsement.
This is the LAST DAY TO REGISTER or update your voter registration in order to vote on Election Day.
Make sure everyone you know – family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, etc. – is registered to vote before October 9th.
This is the FIRST DAY OF EARLY VOTING.

WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
Now is the time to volunteer to help our Democratic candidates win.
This election may be one of the most important elections of our lifetime and we cannot afford to leave anything on the table.
We encourage everybody to set aside at least one day or one weekend between now and Election day to volunteer with a Democratic candidate. There is something for everyone: canvassing, making phone calls, writing postcards, volunteering in the campaign offices, etc.
