#PostThePeach campaign launched for early voters in Georgia

Election officials and voting advocacy groups on Friday launched a #PostThePeach social media campaign to encourage Georgians to get to the polls starting Monday, when early voting begins statewide.

Early voters are encouraged to take a photo of their “I’m A Georgia Voter” sticker, post it on social media with the #PostThePeach hashtag and then challenge friends and family to get out to the polls early, too.

Officials said early voting eases congestion on Election Day and is more convenient for voters. More importantly, they said it allows time for a voter to correct any problem that may occur at the polls including questions about registration.

Voters can go online to find early voting locations in their county via the Secretary of State's voter webpage, www.mvp.sos.ga.gov.
