This morning, the Democratic National Committee is releasing a new voter education video featuring former President Barack Obama, who encourages Georgians to visit to learn about the different options to cast their ballot and make a plan to vote today. Early voting began Monday morning in the Peach State, with long lines and protracted waiting times, most notably in the metro Atlanta area.

“So much is at stake in this election — from getting the pandemic under control to building a fairer economy to taking on climate change to protecting our health care,” President
Obama says in the video. “History shows that the easiest way to make sure that you and your friends vote is to make a plan. And when it comes to voting this year, having a plan has never been more important.”

The video highlights how, in Georgia, voters have several options to conveniently cast their ballot.

With Georgia emerging as a battleground state, Dr. Jill Biden, wife of former vice president and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, appeared in Decatur with prominent state Democrats before traveling to Columbus with Stacey Abrams to meet with military and veteran families.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump Jr. held rallies in Savannah and Kennesaw Monday.

Voters who chose to vote absentee can return their requested ballot by mail, in-person, or at an official drop box; or vote in-person on Election Day. The last day to request an absentee ballot is October 30th. Also, the early voting period ends on October 30th.
