Early voting is underway and while many are focused on the presidential race, there are plenty of state and local races that Georgia Equality wants voters to be aware of as they head to the polls.
Today the state's largest LGBT political advocacy organizations released its 2012 endorsed candidates for the Nov. 6 general election:
SD 6 - Doug Stoner
SD 9 - Scott Drake
STATE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
HD 58 – Simone Bell
HD 86 - Michele Henson HD 93 – Dar’shun Kendrick
HD 96 - Pedro Marin HD 105 – Renita Hamilton
HD 118 – Spencer Frye
District Attorney - Meg Daly
County Commission Chair - Al Scott
County Commission District 6 - Willie Brown
Early voting continues through Nov. 2. To find out where your early voting location is, visit www.sos.ga.gov/elections.
There are several gay candidates on the ballot on Nov. 6 in addition to Rep. Simone Bell, including Timothy Swiney, running as a Democrat for House District 101; and Tim Riley, running for the State Senate District 47 seat as a Democrat.
Georgia Equality is also working hard to ensure fair-minded candidates are elected or retain their seats in the state legislature to block a Republican stronghold of both the Senate and the House.
