The Gold Dome press conference was part of a blitz of activity around early voting. The Lilburn Community Improvement District is sponsoring several forums this week on the MARTA referendum. Peachtree Corners and Lawrenceville are having their own forums. And County Commission Chairwoman Charlotte Nash appeared on the GPB radio show Political Rewind Monday to discuss the ballot measure.
Gwinnett voters will go to the polls March 19 to decide the referendum’s fate. But three weeks of early voting began Monday.
Sen. Sheikh Rahman, D-Lawrenceville, vice-chairman of the county's Senate delegation, urged people to vote, regardless of their views. But the legislators who attended the press conference support the referendum.
“If this is something you want, you have to go to the polls,” said Rep. Jasmine Clark, D-Tucker.
