Vote Early and Vote Often


#9 DO YOU REMEMBER when Georgia operated under the County Unit System? On March 8, 1963, the Supreme Court declared the county unit system unconstitutional. The gubernatorial primary that year was the first to be decided by popular vote since 1908. Later that year, the legislature chose, to continue electing statewide offices by popular vote like we do today.

#9 DID YOU KNOW when many men were riding the rails, they had a distinct social order?  “Hobos like us are looking or work. Mostly we follow the crops. We go wherever we can find work for a couple of days or weeks. Now tramps ride the rails too, but generally they’re just traveling, not looking for work. A bum don’t do nothing. Don’t travel, don’t work. Nobody wants to be called a bum.”
