Get Out the Vote is a campaign to register voters in the state of Georgia. This year we are focusing on Gwinnett County. Due to the number of key elections taking place within this region, it is important that everyone who is eligible to vote is registered to do so. These new voters could be the deciding factor in these elections.  Issues such as the new health care bill and state spending are all going to be effected by this election so it is important that everyone gives their input.  It is important that everyone who can vote is able to and this voter drive is an important step in ensuring that every person's vote is counted.

There will be a second Get Out the Vote drive next Saturday, July 31. The next drive will be at the Wal-Mart Supercenter, 1400 Lawrenceville Hwy, Lawrenceville 30044. If this date works better with your schedule, please contact Michelle and volunteer. There will be multiple time slots for your convenience to pick from in two hour intervals and refreshments will be provided.
