HUNDREDS OF NEW GEORGIA PROJECT VOLUNTEERS TO TURN OUT THE VOTE IN SAVANNAH AND MACON THIS WEEKEND

CEO Nsé Ufot will kick off canvasses and join volunteers in talking to voters with Savannah Mayor Mayor Van R. Johnson, II lending his support

ATLANTA, GA In the final days of what is expected to be a close U.S. Senate runoff, The New Georgia Project Action Fund is launching a series of canvasses and door-knocking events on Saturday, January 2 and Sunday, January 3 to turn out the vote in Savannah and Macon, GA. In Savannah, CEO Nsé Ufot will be joined by Mayor Van R. Johnson, II in talking to voters encouraging them to cast a ballot on January 5.

 

Voters in Chatham and Bibb Counties played a major role in the historic November general election and could determine the balance of power in the U.S. Senate this month. The New Georgia Project Action Fund has already turned out tens of thousands of voters who did not cast a ballot in November, and will knock on hundreds of thousands of doors across Georgia in the coming days.
