Right now, early Primary voting is taking place across the state of Georgia. 

Primary voting is the first step towards the General Election.

The Primaries are held to eliminate candidates competing within the same party.

In the November General Election, Primary winners will compete against opposing political parties.

This is the year of presidential, congressional, state, and some local races, all being extremely important. Early voting lasts until May 20, and Primary Election Day is May 24.

None of us can afford to sit home and not vote. Voter Apathy is not an option. Voting is the future of our children. Voting is the future of our country.
