Stop Suppressing Minority Vote in Consequential Senate Elections

Target: Lori WurtzElections Director of Hall County, Georgia

Goal: Expand early voting sites and increase access for minority voters.

On January 5, a pair of Georgia runoff elections will take place. The results will decide the balance of power in the United States Senate and will likely have widespread repercussion for many policies going forward.  These two races that could determine the future of the United States government are potentially the target of intense voter suppression.

Hall County Georgia is the home of a large percentage of minority voters. Suspiciously, this location currently has about half as many early voting poll sites open as it did in the general election. The lion’s share of sites closed were located in communities heavily populated with Black and Latino voters.

Sign the petition below to demand every voter in Georgia gets an equal opportunity to have their voices heard.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Wurtz,

Georgia has seen unprecedented numbers with early voting. One county seems to be an outlier, with under 15 percent turnout. Hall County has seen the closure of half its polling sites since the general election. Hall County also happens to have a minority-heavy population.

This discrepancy is just the most prominent example. Other regions with abundant minority voters, including populous Cobb County, have also experienced reduced polling sites. For elections that could very well set the course for an entire country, voting opportunities should be expanded, never denied. Open more voting sites.

All eyes are on Georgia. Make it – and every vote – count.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
