Save the Dates! Your 2020 Election Cheat Sheet

When is the Presidential Primary? When is the registration date cutoff? You’ve got questions, we’ve got answers. Bottom line: expect to head to the polls a lot in 2020.

Presidential Primary Date: March 24, 2020. 
**Voter Registration Cutoff: February 24**
This is when you’ll head to the polls to choose the presidential candidate you want representing the Democrats in the 2020 election against President Trump.

General Primary Date: May 19, 2020
**Voter Registration Cutoff: April 20**
This is when you’ll go to vote for who you want to represent the Democrats for federal and state offices (ie: who you want to challenge Senator David Perdue, who you want to represent you in Georgia’s state house and senate, etc)

General Primary Runoff: July 21, 2020
**Voter Registration Cutoff (federal offices only): June 22**
If someone doesn’t get 50% + 1 of the popular vote in the May 19 primary, the election will go to a runoff of the top two candidates.

 General Election: November 3, 2020
**Voter Registration Cutoff: October 5**
This is it. The Big Day. Get out and vote like your rights depend on it (they do).

General Election Runoff for State and Local Offices: December 1, 2020
**Voter Registration Cutoff: October 5**
If someone doesn’t get 50% + 1 of the popular vote in the November 3 election, the election will go to a runoff of the top two candidates.

General Election Runoff for Federal Offices: January 5, 2021
**Voter Registration Cutoff: December 7, 2020**
Basically, this is going to be the runoff for Isakson’s seat. Since his election is a special jungle election, there may be more than two candidates running for one party. And if someone doesn’t get 50% + 1 of the popular vote on November 3, this will be the date of the runoff.

 

What about early voting? That will be decided about 2 months before each election. Stay tuned!

We’re going to be busy in 2020, knocking doors and explaining all these elections to people. Can you spare $5 a month for a recurring donation so we can print canvassing handouts and run Facebook ads?
