Georgia voters will be asked in May to choose candidates for Federal, state, and local representation on the November 8 General Election ballot.

For City of Atlanta Voters
Eligible voters in the City of Atlanta will be asked to consider three infrastructure-related ballot issues that would put $750M toward funding transportation, recreation, public safety, and arts projects in the City. The measures will be presented for approval as two bonds and a renewal of the T-SPLOST (Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax).
