Former State Representative David Lucas and Georgia State Senator Miriam Paris reached out to voters on Saturday and Sunday to get people out to the polls in the run-off election on Tuesday, August 21st.
At Lucas headquarters, volunteers made phone calls to constituents throughout District 26 asking them to vote for David Lucas in the run-off election.
"The main thing is that one on one contact with voters to let people know that David is sincere in his run for election to the state senate to remind people of the things that he's already done and has continued to do out of office," said Elaine Lucas, Macon City Councilwoman, and wife of David Lucas.
Elaine Lucas said that her husband has been out in the field campaigning throughout District 26. Volunteers also organized fliers that were handed out at churches and businesses.
"It's very, very important because not only do we want those voters who voted for David the first time to go back but those folks who did not participate in the previous election can still vote in this run-off election," said Lucas.
At Paris headquarters, volunteers also made phone calls to make that pitch for the State Senator.
"Run-offs are always so tricky and it's always about turn-out so we're doing everything we can to make sure that our voters get out and make the right choice," said Miriam Paris.
Volunteers also hit the streets canvassing neighborhoods throughout District 26.
"It's so important to reach them because number one they need to know what the real message is this race is about running for the office and not against a person, you've got to stay issue driven," said Paris.
