Know Your Precinct

Map of Glynn County Districts and PrecinctsAs you know, important midterm elections are coming up Nov. 6, 2018. From the governorship of Georgia to the Glynn County Board of education, Democrats will be competing in key races up and down the ballot this year.

Glynn Dems will be organizing in our local precincts starting today to identify, energize and activate Democrats all across Glynn County to register to vote and to get out the vote in these critical elections.

Do you know which voting district and precinct you live in? Go to Ga.gov. There you can find out if you are registered to vote and which district and precinct you live in. You can also register to vote right there.

Let us know if you want to get involved in our grass roots efforts to elect Democrats in Glynn County in 2018. Democrats in each of the five Glynn County Districts meet once a month to engage and activate voters in their districts and precincts. Visit our Facebook page or join our Facebook group, subscribe to our calendar to keep up to date on district meetings and activities, and if you haven’t already, sign up to stay in touch.

Thank you for your support.
