Early voting for Runoff Election

Early voting has begun for the July 24 runoff election and will end on July 24.   There is no weekend voting.  On election day, you can vote at your precinct.

This election is for races where the winner received less than 50% of the vote.  I urge everybody to vote in this runoff election because we need to select the strongest Democratic party ticket as possible to challenge the Republicans in November.

For Democrats, those races are as follows

More Early Voting Locations Next Week

Early voting started this past week and we have had a great response. The only issue is that the  lines are long and so is the wait.

The good news is we will get relief this Monday when two more polling stations will be opened in addition to the Main Elections Headquarters in Lawrenceville.

Next week, voters can still vote at the main elections office,

455 Grayson Highway
Lawrenceville, GA 30046

In addition, the following early voting sites will open on Monday.

  • Lenora Park Activity Room at 4515 Lenora Church Road in Snellville
  • George Pierce Park Community Recreation Center at 55 Buford Highway in Suwanee.

Polls at all three locations will be open Monday through Friday, Oct. 24 – 28 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Early Voting

check_vote_dark copyEarly voting starts today, October 13, 2014 in Gwinnett County.   I encourage everybody to get out and cast a ballot during the early voting period or on election day.

But Dewey, you say, “This isn’t a Presidential election year and you are running unopposed, and I have so much to do….. why do I need to vote this year?”.

There is a lot at stake this year.  We need Democrats in office.   We need to have Jason Carter as Governor.  Our current Governor has cost you, the tax payer, millions of dollars in ethics fines.  You shouldn’t have to pay for his corruption.   The current governor has cut millions of dollars from the education budget and refuses to expand Medicaid for those who need health care.

We need Michelle Nunn in the Senate.   We need somebody who is willing to work to get problems solved and not just vote to shut down the government.  We need Doreen Carter as Secretary of State because we need somebody who won’t put barriers in the way of voting registration and voting.  We need Democrats at the local level to stop the kind of Republican obstruction that keeps our cities and schools from functioning.

Here is the schedule and locations for early voting:
