Message from the Chair

Tomorrow evening will be a momentous event for the fledgling Young Democrats of Greenwood. Formed only a year ago, they’ve organized their largest profile activity to date: A Legislative Town Hall that will be conducted virtually, featuring a number of prominent elected officials at various levels of state government. Scroll down for details!

I am so very proud of their Chair, Jitwan Floyd, and the other members of the Executive Committee. Jitwan graduates from Lander University this year, and I’m excited to see how the new leadership will grow and continue to be a voice for political activists of all ages.

I also want to express my pride and appreciation for our Legislators who answered the call to support the YDG and update their constituents in this forum. They are encouraging participation in the political process and their words are sure to inspire future engagement from the younger voters.

We hope to see you there!

Marc E. Elias, lawyer and founder of Democracy Docket, observed the following which will lead to a reduction of votes counted:

The new Georgia law will require voters to submit ID to vote by mail. If they use their driver’s license, they need to provide the #.

One of the two numbers below is correct. If they put the other, it will be rejected.

Are you sure you would pick the right one?
