Year-round voter protection group launched in Georgia, other battleground states
A new voter protection group has teamed with the Democratic Party to finance year-round staff in the battleground states of Georgia, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, and Texas.
Power The Vote will start with six paid positions in Georgia: a director and five deputy regional directors. The group has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars so far, and its launch comes as political parties gear up for the 2022 midterm elections.
The Atlanta-based nonprofit was started by attorneys Jamil Favors and Kim Allen, along with veteran diplomat Jason Lewis-Berry, a former Obama appointee.
