Voting. Keep it Up.
Voting is a fundamental right. The American Revolution began over "no taxation without representation!" Over the past 250 years many groups have struggled, and even given their lives, to expand access for all to this fundamental right.
There are no elections coming up soon, but there are plenty of bills about voting access in the Georgia General Assembly. Stay involved and contact your legislator to voice your opinions.
