Election day is one week away and the NAACP wants to make sure you are an informed voter. Last night, the group held another candidate forum with candidates for Georgia House and Senate explaining their views on everything from taxes to education.
"We need to know the issues, we need to know how people feel about a particular issue," the NAACP's Barbara Magwood said. "We need to know that this the right person to do the job for us, to air our feelings once they get to be elected to the office that they are vying for."
They took questions from several panelists, including our own Sonny Dixon.
The polls open at 7am next Tuesday, July 20. You can watch your vote count on WTOC.
