The 2020 presidential election and 2021 Georgia Senate runoffs exposed serious issues regarding the U.S. electoral process. Amid numerous reports of voter fraud, questionable irregularities, ballot harvesting, etc., many conservatives felt cheated and disenfranchised. Others stated that because of fraud, they would no longer vote since their votes didn’t count.
Since then, the importance of securing U.S. elections has become quite clear. Voters need to have confidence that their ballots will be fairly counted. Likewise, any room for fraud or foul play needs to be rooted out.
This morning, former Georgia GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler announced the start of Greater Georgia, reports Townhall. Put simply, the purpose of Greater Georgia is to “register, engage, and energize” voters for the 2022 elections and beyond.
The Ins and Outs of Greater Georgia
Greater Georgia is a non-profit group that will work to register right-leaning voters, interact with more communities, and improve election integrity in the Peach State.
Loeffler’s role in the non-profit organization will be as chairwoman; hence, in her announcement of Greater Georgia, the former Republican senator explained that “consequences of recent elections” are already materializing in real-time. Loeffler also noted that the conservative message is a winning one that simply needs to be shared with more Americans.

The goals of Greater Georgia are actually quite simple: expand community outreach, rebuild voters’ confidence in elections, register voters, and engage voters in elections. This is imperative for not only 2022 midterm races, but also future elections to come.
The Battle for 2022
2022 will mark the year of some serious elections, both across the entire U.S. and in Georgia.
Sen. Raphael Warnock will be up for re-election, for starters. Just one week ago, former Sen. David Perdue filed the necessary paperwork to challenge Warnock in the race. Perdue, while still considering whether or not to run, is viewed as very likely to start a campaign for the up-for-grabs Senate seat.

Likewise, the Georgia gubernatorial race is also arriving in 2022. GOP Rep. Doug Collins is rumored to be considering a primary run against current Republican Governor Brian Kemp. Meanwhile, there are rumors that Stacey Abrams will make another run at becoming Georgia’s governor.
Whether or not Republicans win or lose these forthcoming elections will largely depend on if conservative voters turn out. This is what Greater Georgia is all about.
What do you think about the launch of the non-profit Greater Georgia? Will this play a role in restoring confidence in U.S. elections and getting conservatives elected into office? Let us know in the comments section below.
