As a voter, you will help decide who will lead us. You make your voice heard on important issues that affect the future of our state and nation. Every time you use your precious right to vote, our democracy grows stronger. Participating in elections is easy when you have the tools and information.
Yesterday on election day here in Georgia, voters were deciding who would represent them in the Senate. This was a runoff election between Raphael Warnock and Herschel Walker.
A canvassing group hired me to capture their people going door to door in Atlanta to find out what motivated people for this election. Canvassing is used by political parties and issue groups to identify supporters, persuade the undecided, and add voters to the voter’s list through voter registration, and it is central to get-out-the-vote operations. It is the core element of what political campaigns call the ground game or field.
I was listening to some of their responses and topics like the economy, healthcare, and women’s rights, and picking someone they wanted to represent them that they could trust would vote in their best interest was the top reason I was hearing from the voters.
These are just some of the photos from the day, and I hope you enjoy seeing how democracy in action looks in Atlanta on election day.
