As Georgia's November midterm elections steadily approach, GPB's Morning Edition is taking a look at the importance of the offices on the ballot and why Georgians should turn out to vote in these races.
Powered By The People is a weekly series where GPB-Atlanta host Leah Fleming speaks with political voices from around the state to give listeners a better idea about the offices that could impact their futures.
We begin the series by discussing the role of the governor, a hotly contested race between Stacey Abrams and Brian Kemp.
