Presidential Preference – be sure to vote!

From the Democratic Party of Georgia:

The Voter Protection Committee of the DPG has hashed out a smart and modern
plan to monitor and document any issues that might arise at the polls for
the PPP. Many thanks to Penney Allen and David Dreyer for their hard work
on this.

If any Georgia voters have any questions about their polling location, they
can:

1) Use the hashtag #gavote411. We have volunteers monitoring social
media.

2) Call the office at 678-278-2016. We have a team standing by to
answer the phones and direct folks in the right direction.

3) Use our nifty polling place locator.

4) Keep an eye out for shareable graphics throughout the day.

The same goes for any problems at the polls. Call us at 678-278-2016 or use
the hashtag #gavote911 on Twitter. Again, we’ll have folks monitoring these
issues to respond and document.

For Spanish speaking voters, there’s a new Android app that might be
helpful.
