Stacey Abrams

Georgia Governor

Why Stacey Abrams is a voting rights champion:

  • During Stacey’s time in the Georgia state legislature, she has worked to stop voter suppression.
  • When Republicans pushed a strict voter ID law through the state legislature, Stacey stood up for communities of color, people with disabilities and the elderly.
  • As Georgia governor, Stacey is committed to making voting rights a high priority.
  • “Having fought against extreme voter suppression efforts in the Georgia state legislature, Representative Stacey Abrams will make an outstanding Georgia governor who makes voting rights a high priority. Stacey stood up for communities of color, people with disabilities and the elderly when Republicans pushed a strict voter ID law through the state legislature. Stacey has a long record of fighting for the rights of vulnerable Georgians, which is why we are so proud to support her candidacy.” — Jason Kander on Let America Vote’s endorsement of Stacey Abrams for Georgia governor.
  • Throughout her career, Abrams has fought to protect and expand access to the polls. When she learned over 800,000 people of color in Georgia were not registered to vote, she founded the New Georgia Project — and in just two years, they submitted over 200,000 registrations and successfully fought voter suppression. As Governor, Abrams will make voting more accessible and ensure every vote counts.
