Voters across Georgia are being challenged to vote early and show off their "I'm A Georgia Voter" stickers as part of the #PostThePeach Challenge, kicking off during a press conference on Friday in downtown Atlanta. <br />
The #PostThePeach Challenge, initiated by a coalition of county election officials (including those in Hall County), civic organizations and individual voters, asks voters across Georgia to cast their ballots during early voting for the November 4 general election.<br />
After casting their ballots, voters are being asked to post photos of themselves wearing their state-issued "I am Georgia Voter" peach sticker and to challenge others to #PostThePeach on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. <br />
Voters and organizations throughout Georgia are invited to participate in the nonpartisan #PostThePeach Challenge to engage voters and encourage participation in early voting. Current partners include:<br />
· Registration & Elections officials from Carroll County, DeKalb County, Fulton County, Hall County and others<br />
· Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials<br />
· Georgia Coalition for the People's Agenda<br />
· League of Women Voters of Georgia<br />
· Pro Georgia<br />
Early voting across Georgia begins on Monday. <br />
