Georgia Rising is a brand new non-partisan campaign by The Good Deed Corps* to increase voter turnout during early voting for the Georgia runoff election from Dec 14th thru Jan 5th.
The stakes of this runoff election are high for voters in Georgia and across the country, and we’re working hard to make sure every voter can be seen, heard, and counted!
The Good Deed Corps has an ambitious goal of launching ten bold and distinctive voter mobilization trucks across the state of Georgia for early voting in the Senate runoff election.
Each Georgia Rising “Every Vote Counts” truck will be filled with free coffee, hot chocolate, donuts, and a team of friendly and knowledgeable election volunteers.
The trucks will serve as a one-stop shop to empower, engage, and inspire voters at early voting locations in underserved areas throughout Georgia.
We’ll support voters who face obstacles to casting a ballot, and we’ll offer tools to encourage friends and family to vote.
The goal is for each truck to engage between 500-750 voters each day – that’s 3,500 to 5,250 voters each week in a state whose last election was decided by 12,000 votes!
Not only will we be promoting democracy and increasing voter turnout, we’ll also be utilizing the well-honed skills of battle tested field organizers from around the country and employing local vendors who have been hit hard by COVID-19.
*The Good Deed Corps is a fiscally sponsored project of Jumpstart Labs, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt California Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation.
(All funds raised in excess of those needed to support the Georgia Rising campaign will be directed toward future civic education and engagement.)
