Galloway, Jim (CMG-Atlanta)

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.
