Because Georgians showed up to the polls in HUGE numbers in 2020, President Biden was elected. As a result, our communities have received incredible resources and investments. That’s the power of our vote. In 2024, we get to show up and do it again to get even more of the changes that we need.

See how Georgia and the nation have changed these last four years all thanks to Georgia voters. Click on the issues important to you to learn more! If you’re ready for more change this year, pledge to vote with NGPAF.

Ebony, 47, Carroll County, GA

“I’m a mother of four, a daughter, and a Georgia voter. Like so many others, I had to take out student loans to get my college degree, which left me with a lot of debt when I graduated. I’m thankful that, because Georgians voted in 2020 President Biden was elected. As a result, my student loan debt has been forgiven. That’s $150,000 in debt I no longer have to think about. Now, I can put my kids through college and plan for the future with less stress.

I can also afford to take better care of my aging parents, especially with the President’s cap on prescription drug costs for seniors, which has given me and my family incredible peace of mind when we go to the pharmacy.

I’m voting in November for even more financial freedom, opportunities for higher education and career paths, and more affordable healthcare access. That’s the power of our vote. I hope you’ll join me.”
