Get your Election Day edumacation!
With less than a week until Election Day, it's time for the undecideds to study up
We can hear the second hand taunting us. As this ridiculous, crowded conundrum of an election season drags to an end, we'd like to spotlight a few resources to help our undecided readers pick a favorite in Atlanta's elections.
First of all, Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 7, but early voting is underway until tomorrow at 7 p.m.
Second, there are still eight candidates vying for the chief seat, and it's practically impossible to pinpoint who of the bunch will win a chance at a runoff election. Most of the polls we've seen this election season are skewed and biased, and we're not gambling on the outcome anyway. (Although, maybe we should.)
Our buddies (and neighbors) at the Center for Civic Innovation run an outstanding, educational, and frankly, quite aesthetically-pleasing website replete with all the info you could stuff in your noggin. CCI's #VoteLocal page, managed in tandem with advocacy group Our Future Atlanta, will introduce you to everyone aiming for the mayor, city council, or seatshttps://www.voteatl.org/school-board" rel="external">school board seats.
If you're unsure of who you can vote for or where your local polling place is, you can swing by the city's website and the secretary of state's page.
