The race is tight, but if we get the 283,000 Latino households in Georgia to vote as part of a large multi-racial coalition working in Georgia, we can flip the two remaining seats in the Senate. This means we take the power away from the Republican party.
Yes, anyone who didn’t vote or is just turning 18 before January 5th can register to vote until December 7th, 2020. Click here to register for the first time or check your registration.

If you’re in Georgia, please join our volunteers who are already knocking on doors. Meeting our gente where they are and having authentic, face-to-face conversations is one of the most effective ways to ensure Latino voters head to the polls.
For your safety and the safety of our community, we will have a strict safety plan in place for COVID. All participants will be required to comply with these protocols and will receive safety training prior to knocking doors. Mijente has also been safely knocking on doors in North Carolina and Georgia and our organizers will be using that experience to inform our process. That said, everyone should assess their own health risks and make decisions that are best fit for their particular situation.
The rest of our team is hosting phone banking sessions, so please join us! You don’t need to be familiar with the candidates, logistics, or political history in Georgia. We’ll help you with scripts and detailed instructions.
English speakers are also welcome! We call voters who speak both languages and will train you on what to do if you can't communicate with someone.
