    Statewide Candidates

    These candidates are on every ballot in the State of Georgia. Your State government has been under complete Republican control for over a dozen years. Abortion is now illegal. Our health care is not available for the less fortunate. Our minimum wage is 1/3 of what it should be. Georgia needs a change.

    Congressional Candidates

    These candidates will represent you on Capitol Hill come January. Senator Raphael Warnock is in one of the tightest races in the country in an election that could very well result in Republican control of Congress and a 2023 national abortion ban.

    State Congressional Candidates

    These candidates write the laws that change your daily lives. You need to vote Democrat for State House and Senate. Republicans banned abortion. Senator Valencia Seay and Representative Debra Bazemore voted to not ban abortion. Every candidate on this list not only supports a woman’s right to choose, they support expanding health care access to underserved communities so Georgia can decrease its abysmal maternal and infant mortality rates. 60% of Georgia’s maternal deaths are preventable. Georgia Democrats want to help women. Vote them in and let them try.

    Local Candidates

    You HAVE to vote Democrat all the way down the ballot if you want to preserve the sanctity of your local government. School Board and Commissioner seats control what your kids are taught (or not taught) and how your tax money is spent.

    Flip Fayette Blue

    Fayette County has grown so Democratic over the last 15 years that it now sits a coinflip. We have a chance to flip BLUE for the first time since the era of Dixiecrats, this time as a party working to protect the rights of everybody. There’s only one group left in local politics that governs in reality, and it’s not them.

    Fayette County – 2000 Election
    Gore 28.06%
    Bush 69.11%
    Fayette County – 2020 Election
    Biden 45.9%
    Trump 52.7%
    Finish the job!

    Who we are

    The Fayette County Democrats are a county committee within the body of the Democratic Party of Georgia. We are committed to the engagement of voters in Fayette County – from registration drives to Get Out the Vote efforts to voter participation outreach, we’re the body responsible for electing Democrats in our little slice of Georgia.
