Georgia Runoff Election

Thanks and congratulations to our UU the Vote community! You were part of the historic efforts this electoral season to protect and expand democracy. But it’s not over.

With our partners in Georgia, we helped build a groundswell of Georgia voters that has forced an historic runoff in January for two US Senate seats. Right now, we need to increase our efforts to support Georgia voters and partners to carry this work forward to the January 5 runoff election. Scroll down for a list of events, trainings, and weekly phonebanks through January 3.

Every day counts. Help us mobilize Georgia voters!
