ACLU of Georgia's Local Election Advocates and Defenders (LEAD) Program Information
Local election offices in Georgia make the crucial decisions that let us freely exercise our sacred right to vote. We must work at the local level to hold election officials accountable to Georgia voters.
The Local Election Advocates and Defenders (LEAD) program helps build more transparent, effective, accessible, and responsive elections offices.
Program volunteers, or LEADers, play a fundamental role in protecting ballot access. Embedded in their counties, LEADers are the program’s eyes and ears on the ground, supporting the ACLU of Georgia to guarantee free and fair elections across our state. LEADers can expect to attend local Board of Elections meetings, report back on potential issues, and work with the ACLU of Georgia to advocate for voter-minded policies and practices.
We rely on volunteers and supporters like you to make the important work of protecting voter access to the ballot possible!
