Voter Registration Toolkit

This is a landmark year for American democracy—2020 marks both the centennial of women’s suffrage as well as the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act. The right to vote was hard-won by our forebearers. Atlanta’s own late Congressman John Lewis, who suffered multiple beatings during the Civil Rights Movement, called the vote “the most powerful nonviolent tool or instrument in a democratic society.”

This year, Atlanta History Center has used the lens of citizenship to explore different aspects of our city’s past. From Black women’s struggle for suffrage to Atlanta’s winning of the bid to host the 1996 Olympic Games, there’s a lot to learn about what it means to be an active and engaged member of the community.

In that spirit, we’ve compiled below a list resources to help Georgians register to vote, find their polling place, volunteer as a paid poll worker, and request a mail-in ballot.

Get out. and vote!
