ATLANTA, GA: Sarah Riggs Amico, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate, cast her ballot for the June 9 primary today near her home in Marietta, Ga. With her daughters Ava and Sofia by her side, Amico dropped her ballot into the secure ballot drop box outside of the Cobb County Elections Office.
“I was proud to have my daughters with me today as I cast my ballot using one of the safe and secure ballot drop off boxes here in Cobb County, GA,” Amico said. “Today, I voted for candidates at every level of the ballot who will build the kind of world I want my daughters to grow up in.”
Amico has made voting rights one of the cornerstones of her campaign, as it was in 2018 when she ran alongside Stacey Abrams as the nominee for Lt. Governor. Amico’s Senate campaign website provides a comprehensive Voting Rights resources section.
“One of my top priorities in the U.S. Senate will be to fully restore the Voting Rights Act and its protections of minority and disenfranchised communities. Voting is a Constitutionally protected right, and every eligible Georgia voter should be able to cast their ballot as safely and freely as my daughters and I did today. Anyone who encounters difficulties or questions should contact the Georgia Voter Protection Hotline at 1-888-730-5816.”
The Democratic Primary has seen record numbers of voters request absentee ballots this election cycle. Due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, drop boxes were placed at many polling locations around the state to allow voters to safely deliver their ballots in person.
