In Georgia, Latinos shatter runoff turnout record as groups make last push for voters
Celebrities, religious leaders, political figures, non-profit organizations, music bands, and even comic book characters have all been deployed in an attempt to ensure high turnout among Latino voters in the Georgia Senate run-off elections. These efforts appear to have worked, as 65% of Latino voters who voted in the November general election have voted early in the runoffs (compared to only 10% in 2018).
Young adults will be the nation’s largest voting bloc in the upcoming election and the National Voter Education Week plans to equip them with the tools and information they need to cast a ballot this fall.
A voting initiative started by several Black athletes and artists combatting systemic and racist voter suppression. This initiative aims at educating, energizing, and protecting the Black community’s right to vote.
