Georgia Dems Invoke Ferguson In Early Voting Flyer (PHOTOS)

A flyer from the Georgia Democratic Party invokes the events Ferguson, Missouri in response to the shooting of Michael Brown to encourage people to vote.

On one page of the flyer, reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the words “if you want to prevent another Ferguson in their future…” over a picture of two young African American children with signs that read “don’t shoot.”

The next page reads “vote” and “It’s up to you to make change happen.”

A third page of the flyer goes into more detail about the importance of early voting.

“If we want a better, safer future for our children, it’s up to us to vote for change,” the third page reads. “The choices may not always be perfect, but the cost of inaction is simply too great.”

One of the most high profile races int he 2014 election cycle is the Georgia race for U.S. Senate between Republican businessman David Perdue and Democrat Michelle Nunn. The New York Times reported earlier in the week that Democrats are hoping that strong Democratic turnout will help boost Nunn enough to beat Perdue.

The TPM Polltracker finds Nunn leading the rest of the field by 2.4 points.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.
