Karen Handel Must Participate in 6 Debates with Jon Ossoff prior to 6th district election
Residents of the 6th district of Georgia deserve to be able to make an informed decision prior to casting their vote on June 20, 2017. Without sufficient public debates, this election will become a popularity contest rather than a democratic election. Karen Handel has rejected several public debates, and is attempting to vet the 3 confirmed debates in an effort to evade public scrutiny. Voters deserve to have answers to their questions and a clear understanding of the vision and plans of our officials prior to casting our vote in this critical election. Candidates shouldn't be allowed to cherry pick which debates they will attend based on their popularity in those regions. Karen Handel is running a campaign to represent the constituents of this district, and she must make an effort to participate in these debates where our diverse community is represented. Failure to do so will lead to inflated election results, based solely on party affiliation rather than an informed populous casting their vote for the best candidate to represent their interests & community in Congress.

Tell presidential candidates: women’s REAL issues deserve a debate
It's time for presidential candidates to go on record about issues that affect all women and their families. Women represent more than half the population and turn out to vote more than men, yet women’s issues have received little attention during this presidential election cycle. In 21 primary debates, over 700 questions were asked of 16 candidates; only 6 were about issues that disproportionately affect women. Womensdebate.org is a nonpartisan collective of concerned citizens who are calling upon all political candidates to commit to a live presidential debate or town hall focused exclusively on issues affecting American women and girls, namely: Elimination of barriers that prevent equal participation in the economy Access to quality affordable health care opportunities for all Safe and just recourse when confronted with violence and sexual exploitation Whether for yourself, your daughter, your spouse/significant other, your colleague or because it is the right thing to do, we urge you to sign this petition to have gender equality and women’s rights be addressed during this important election year. We are all working towards a common goal – an equitable and safe environment for all. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

More Choices For President 2020!
Were you frustrated with the top 2 candidates for president in 2016? Are you tired of the 2 party system and want more choices? For too long the media has controlled our election choices by limiting the publicity of third party candidates and this year, it resulted in an election where 65% of voters were voting against, rather than for, a candidate. (According to Pew Research Center.) This petition goes to the Commission on Presidential Debates to request that they invite more candidates to participate in the 2020 presidential debates. Even one more candidate would be appreciated, but perhaps as high as the top 5 nationally polling candidates with numbers 6-10 participating in an earlier debate. We the people need to be informed about our choices and we need change.
