If you live in the eastern half of our state, chances are you live in or near a district in which a primary runoff election is taking place on May 24. Voter turnout is typically very low in runoff elections, which means you can play a major role in these critical races by going to the polls.

If you aren’t yet registered to vote, there is still time! Register to vote by April 25, and you’ll be eligible to participate in the May runoffs.

To meet the candidates and learn whether you’ll have an opportunity to vote in a runoff, check out our blog post on TeachtheVote.org.
