🚨 DA Candidate Deborah Gonzalez Update:
Special Election Runoff for Athens/Oconee Western Circuit DA Special Election will be on Dec. 1


🚨 BREAKING NEWS: 11/11/20
The Athens-Clarke County Board of Elections may not be able to change the date of the special election runoff for DA! I just got off the phone with an A-CC election official. The SoS press conference announcing the combination of the local & state runoffs with the US Senate runoff was a total surprise to them. This may be the case for the other special election runoffs in other races. Only the public service commission runoff is a regular election runoff.

🚨 11/11/20 I will update as information is available.

🚨 11/12/20 Update: Local & State Special Election runoffs will be on Dec. 1, 2020
State Public Service Commission runoff will be on Jan. 5, 2021

A reminder about the State & Local runoff election on December 1, 2020:

🍑 Hey y’all! I know that every one is so excited about the dual US Senate runoffs, but we have a State & Local Special Election runoff on Tuesday December 1, 2020!

🍑 GOTV for these incredibly important Special Election runoffs, including the Western Circuit (Athens-Clarke County and Oconee County) District Attorney and the 5th Congressional District Special Election runoff, among others. Not every county and city will have a Dec. 1 runoff, so check with your local Board of Elections.

🍑 Remind your family, friends & neighbors to VOTE! 🗳

🍑 Please vote in the Georgia State & Local runoff election on Tuesday December 1, 2020!
