Election Day: November 6, 2012
We’re writing you again to make sure you’re aware that next week, the only Georgia-specific statewide election is for the Georgia Public Service Commission.
The Georgia Public Service Commission has exclusive power to decide what are fair and reasonable rates for utility services. It must balance Georgia citizens’ need for reliable services and reasonable rates with the need for utilities to earn a reasonable return on investment.
The five elected Commissioners, supported by approximately 90 staff members, make decisions that affect the lives of every Georgian each time a telephone is picked up, a light is turned on and a gas burner is used.
If you care about the outcome, don’t stand on the sidelines: get out and vote for clean energy candidates!
Georgia allows registered voters to vote before Election Day and early voting kicked offOctober 29th. Avoid long lines or bad weather on November 6th: vote early to ensure your vote counts.
