|Georgia Equality pushes members to vote with automated robocall|

The state's largest LGBT advocacy organization, Georgia Equality, has begun robocalling its LGBT supporters encouraging them to vote in the upcoming July 31 Georgia primary, the group said this week.
A robocall is a computerized autodialer that delivers a pre-recorded message, and is most commonly used in political campaigns.
“We're doing an aggressive get out the vote effort this year,” GE Executive Director Jeff Graham said this week. “On average less than 25 percent of registered voters vote in the primaries — yet a majority of legislative races are determined in the primaries because there is no challenger in the general election.”
Graham said the organization is targeting its own members in the metro-Atlanta area.
“This year we are also voting on judges and the transportation referendum — so if people don't vote now, they won't have a voice in these important decisions,” Graham added.
Listen to the robocall below:
