EARLY VOTING ENDS TODAY!

ELECTION DAY IS TUESDAY, MAY 22. FIND YOUR POLLING PLACE HERE.

This year, Color Of Change PAC is helping Black voters in Georgia get empowered to cast game-changing votes to elect Stacey Abrams as Governor of Georgia.   

THE CANDIDATES

Stacey Abrams and Stacey Evans are competing in the Democratic Primary Election in the Georgia Gubernatorial race. If elected, Stacey Abrams would be the first Black female governor in the U.S. Your vote can make history.

Stacey Abrams

Stacey

Stacey Abrams  has a history of strong and ambitious leadership. Abrams was the first woman to lead either party in the Georgia General Assembly and the first African American to lead in the House of Representatives.

She opposes money bail, is committed to creating long-term, high wage jobs in Georgia, and has vowed to expand access to affordable healthcare. She also supports providing tax credits and subsidies for high-quality childcare, expanding after school programs, and offering debt-free-four-year college. A longtime Atlanta resident, Abrams is the candidate for a more fair and inclusive Georgia.

Stacey Evans

Stacey Evans served as a representative in the Georgia House prior to declaring her candidacy. During her time as a representative, Evans voted in favor of bills that would facilitate the conversion of public schools to charter school management.

While Evans has made a few remarks about criminal justice reform, she has not committed to ending money bail or provided a concrete plan for change. Evans is a seemingly progressive candidate, but that isn’t enough for this race. We need to support a candidate who is 100% committed to the issues our community cares about.

Why is the Governor’s race so important?

The governor makes policy recommendations that lawmakers in both the state House and Senate chambers may sponsor and introduce as bills. The governor also appoints members of boards and commissions who oversee the heads of state agencies and departments. Your governor has a direct impact on your community. Black people, who make up only 32 percent of Georgia’s population, make up 52.8 percent of the people in jail. Governors have the power to reform the criminal justice system. That’s why voting in this election is crucial.

Where do I vote?

Early voting begins April 30th and runs through May 18th. Voting day for the general election is May 22nd.
