Members of the group Greater Georgia announced this week they have launched a voter registration and mobilization effort in Marietta ahead of the scheduled June 15 election for the open State House District 34 seat.
Greater Georgia members told followers in an emailed newsletter this week they are deploying staff members, volunteers, and organizers to register conservative-leaning voters ahead of the deadline. They said they also want to get out the vote via door-to-door canvassing, phone-banking, texting, and handwritten mail.
“Greater Georgia is taking the lead to register and engage more voters ahead of the special election for State House District 34. We are marshaling our resources to ensure that we turn out the vote on June 15 to protect individual liberties and create more opportunities for hardworking Georgians,” Greater Georgia Chairwoman Kelly Loeffler said in a press release.
“At such a pivotal time for our state, Greater Georgia is laser-focused on sending elected officials to the General Assembly who will champion the pro-growth, conservative values that uplift all communities.”
The voter registration deadline is Monday, May 17. Advance and in-person early voting begins May 24, according to the Greater Georgia newsletter.
Cobb County officials announced the special election on their website to fill a vacancy due to the resignation of State Rep. Bert Reeves (R-Marietta). Georgia Secretary of State officials also notified the public.
Officials with the Atlanta-based Georgia Institute of Technology announced last month that they hired Reeves to serve as their vice president for Institute Relations. Georgia Institute of Technology officials announced in a press release that Reeves began his new job on May 1.
Voters first elected Reeves to the Georgia General Assembly in November 2014. While there, Reeves served as a floor leader for the governor, and also as vice chairman of the Judiciary Non-Civil Committee. He was also vice chairman of the Higher Education Committee, as well as a member on the Appropriations, Insurance, Judiciary, Juvenile Justice, Science and Technology, and Ways and Means committees, according to the Georgia Institute of Technology’s press release.
According to its website, Greater Georgia members support, among other things, individual liberties, lower taxes, and educational choice.
