100 Days Out: Georgia Democrats Are Ready To Win

Today marks 100 days out from Election Day — and with momentum and years of investment on our side, Georgia Democrats are ready to win. The Democratic Party of Georgia has been putting in the work on the ground to elect Joe Biden, Jon Ossoff, and Democrats across Georgia on November 3rd. Here’s what you need to know:

We’ve seen record-breaking turnout for Democrats in 2020 so far. In Georgia’s June 9th primary, Democrats shattered all previous records for primary election turnout, with more than 1,283,000 voters turning out for Democrats. Democrats bested Republicans for turnout at every level in this primary: casting more ballots by mail, more ballots early in person, and more ballots on Election Day. This record-breaking turnout comes after significant wins and engagement throughout 2019, including multiple mayoral races which the DPG invested in and won. 

Georgia Democrats have built a strong organizing operation to win seats up and down the ballot. We’ve invested in making organizing a priority all year round, to invest in communities long before Election Day. From early investments in the DNC’s summer 2019 Organizing Corps program to our 70+ organizers now on the ground, we have been engaging with voters early and building the relationships that will take Democrats to victory. Our team continues to break records, making over 1.6 million voter contacts in the weeks leading up to GOTV and Election Day.

Our voter protection operation is stronger than ever. Georgia Democrats have built one of the strongest voter protection programs in the nation, with 5 full time staff members. Our team and hundreds of dedicated volunteers are helping voters at every level in advance of Election Day, including monitoring absentee ballots, poll observing, and ballot remediation, in addition to our continuing voter education and support work. Our voter protection hotline received over 6,000 calls on primary day alone, and our team is prepared for much more in November.

We have the chance to win big this year. Besides Georgia’s 16 electoral college votes and delivering Georgia for Vice-President Biden, winning Georgia means delivering 2 U.S. Senate seats, winning Georgia’s two highly competitive seats in the 6th and 7th congressional districts, and flipping the State House. If the electorate from the June 9th primary stays the same in November, Georgia Democrats will win big up and down the ballot — including winning both Senate seats, the White House, the 6th and 7th Congressional Districts, and 16+ of our targeted seats needed to flip the Georgia State House and fight for fair redistricting for the next 10 years.

Momentum is on our side. Polls have consistently shown that Georgia is more of a swing state than ever this year, with recent polling showing Joe Biden with a narrow lead in the state. Just this week, new analysis by the Cook Political Report officially moved the Ossoff-Perdue race to a “Toss Up” based on the strong primary turnout for Democrats.

Georgia Democrats aren’t taking anything for granted this cycle. Our team will keep hustling to talk with every voter, protect every vote, and fight back against Republicans’ toxic agenda that is hurting working families across Georgia. We know we can win this November, and secure strong Democratic leadership that will fight for our values.

 While Georgians head to the polls today to make their voices heard in record numbers amidst voting challenges across the state, Georgia Democrats have been putting in the work for our candidates up and down the ballot to win big in November. Here’s what you need to know:
Democrats are closer than ever to victory in Georgia. In 2018, Democrats flipped the 6th Congressional District in metro Atlanta for Lucy McBath, and helped Stacey Abrams win the most votes for a Democrat in Georgia history, with a difference of only 55,000 votes amid widespread voter suppression. Since 2018, more than 700,000 Georgians have registered to vote, and those voters are younger, more diverse, and more likely to support Democrats.
After the early voting period, Democrats are leading in turnout for this primary. After a record number of vote by mail ballots cast and three weeks of early voting, Democrats are leading by approx. 30,000 votes and counting — and we expect that number to grow. This morning, the AJC reported that in 10 of 11 metro Atlanta counties, Democrats’ share of early votes exceeded Stacey Abrams’ margin in those counties in 2018 — including margins +8 and +6 points higher for Democrats in growing metro areas like Douglas, Rockdale, and Henry counties.
Joe Biden is tied with Trump in Georgia, and Republicans are losing ground in recent polling. The latest Civiqs polling confirmed that the presidential race is “neck and neck” in Georgia — with Democratic nominee Joe Biden now opening up a small lead over Donald Trump. Both of Georgia’s Senate seats are up for grabs, with Democratic candidates leading Senator David Perdue as well as Senator Kelly Loeffler and Congressman Doug Collins.
Winning Georgia is big for Democrats. Besides Georgia’s 14 electoral college votes, winning Georgia means delivering 2 Senate seats, the 6th and 7th congressional districts, and flipping the State House. If the electorate from this primary so far stays the same in November, Georgia Democrats will win big up and down the ballot — including winning both Senate seats, the White House, the 6th and 7th Congressional Districts, and 16 of our targeted seats needed to flip the Georgia State House.
The Democratic Party of Georgia is putting in the work to win. This cycle alone, Georgia Democrats have recruited the highest number of candidates for state legislative races since Reconstruction, and hired dozens of full time organizing staffers. The DPG has the largest voter protection program in party history, and staffers are assisting voters all day as they navigate problems at the polls. Georgia has already been identified as a battleground state by national Democrats, and received significant national investment to build this operation.
As results come in tonight and later this week, one thing is clear: Georgia’s future is blue.
