What We Do
Towns County Democrats' mission
is to elect fellow Democrats to office.
We are a local team of Towns County residents.
We are as diverse as the community we live in,
representing men and women, young and old, black, brown and white, retired and working.
We love where we live and work to maintain our county as a special place.
Absentee Ballot Applications Mailed to All Active Registered Voters
The State of Georgia has announced that all active registered voters will be mailed an application for an absentee ballot for the May primary election, with voting for this election transitioning to mail due to the coronavirus public health emergency.
When you receive an application for an absentee ballot in your mailbox, please request the Democratic Party ballot.
Please encourage your friends and neighbors to check their voter registration during this time to ensure all the information on file is correct, and follow all instructions on both the application, and the absentee ballot itself so that your vote counts and you can have your say in this important primary election.
Towns County Democrats are grateful that the primary is being transitioned to mail voting to ensure that voters and elections workers can stay safe and healthy, while remaining civically active during this state of emergency.
To the People of the 9th Cong. Dist.
As the chair of the Ninth Congressional District for the Democratic Party of Georgia, the recent comment by Congressman Doug Collins that Democrats love terrorist was an all time low in this tit-for-tat that Republicans and Democrats are involved in.
Of course, this statement is not true. Democrats are offended and hurt by this characterization that Representative Collins made on Fox News that went out to the nation and the world.
We are inviting Congressman Collins and all the citizens in the Ninth District to come to a Democratic Committee meeting in your county. Visit with us and see what our values are. They are the same as Republican values. We value our freedoms that are guaranteed to us in the Constitution. We are people of faith and we love our families, our country, and our community. While we may differ on some policy issues we are all working towards the same goals.
I understand that Representative Collins has since apologized in the Gainesville Times for the statement he made. While we accept his apology, the local newspaper does not reach as many citizens as Fox News.
It is our hope that when the citizens of the Ninth Congressional District and across this nation go to vote in 2020, that you will vote for the candidate that will promote an environment of working together and not one that continues to divide us.
June Krise, Chair
9th Congressional District
