Georgia NAACP Holds Two Press Conferences on Election Day

Georgia NAACP Headquarters Addresses Black Voters Concerns Throughout the State in Two Press Conferences


ATLANTA, GA –– The Georgia NAACP headquarters will be addressing voter concerns from our 125 units across the state of Georgia. Our legal fellows are stationed at our HQ to ensure all election offices are operating legally and voters are safe from any voter intimidation while waiting at the polls. Our branch presidents across the state have been working diligently to report any issues that they are seeing in their counties. We also have deployed poll monitors to various precincts who are also reporting any technical issues with voting machines, check-in times, paper ballots, and any community members passing out food or water that are being criminalized. Updates from our units have shown a great turnout at polling sites. Our partnership with Lyft will expire at 12 A.M. ET. If voters still need a ride to the polls, they can access the code by filling out our form here:https://bit.ly/2Tx3FHJ. We will be working until 11 P.M. ET tonight to ensure that every vote is counted.


“We are doing everything in our power to ensure that every single vote is counted. We are prepared to fight against all forms of voter suppression placed upon the Black and Brown communities that hinder people to vote,” says Rev. James Woodall, State President of Georgia NAACP.
