LAST WEEK of Early VOTING CONTINUES this week for the May 24th elections!  

The #GALatinoVote grows in strength and numbers!  Help us engage our community and encourage them to vote.

The Georgia Latino Vote has grown a LOT!  In 2003, when we started as an organization, there were only 10,000 Latinos registered to vote.  The latest estimate of the Latino electorate puts that strength at over 220,000 voters.

To check your county location for early voting sites, days and times, please visit this link & select your county:

In Gwinnett County, please see this link, which includes two Saturday voting options:

Many Latino voters found out too late that they were not registered or that they had not updated their voter registration information after they had moved.  Please check if you are registered to vote here and to find your polling location here:  http://www.mvp.sos.ga.gov

If you are NOT registered to vote OR if you have moved, you should register to vote online and/or update your information at www.GALEO.org.

The #GALatinoVote grows stronger every day.  Join the efforts to have a high Latino voter turnout in all elections, including the General Election in November 2016.

If you have questions or experienced problems in voting, please call us at 1-888-54GALEO.

After you vote, then make sure you #PostThePeach and encourage others to vote early too!
