To aid Georgia citizens to make the most informed vote, the League of Women Voters in cooperation with The Atlanta-Journal Constitution and WSB-TV, has published a non-partisan online voter guide.

The 2012 Voter Guide includes information on the Presidential race, all state-wide races and select counties across the state. Races include: President; U.S. Congressional; Public Services Commission; State House; State Senate; constitutional amendments; City/County Commissioner; Board of Education; Sheriff; Tax Commissioner and local referendums.

The 2012 voter guide is easy to use–simply enter your address and zip code to view information provided by the candidates. Citizens may access the Voter Guide by visiting: www.lwvga.org and www.ajc.com/voterguide.

The League is a non-partisan organization that has promoted citizens’ education and active involvement in government since 1920.
