November 7th is Election Day! Dr. Adrienne Jones, assistant professor of political science, joins On Topic to share the importance of voting and the widespread impact that is made because of it. Students, be sure your voice is heard, and remember, "Real Maroon Tigers Vote!"
Today in Atlanta, voters will decide who will represent them in five Board of Education districts. Precincts are open from 7am to 7pm for voters to cast ballots for candidates running in Districts 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9.
Why it matters: Board of Education members are responsible for hiring and firing the Atlanta Public Schools superintendent. The board also approves the system's annual operating budget and implements policies.
