MACON, Ga. (WGXA) -- Democrats across Georgia are gearing up and going out to secure your vote in the next upcoming election cycle.

With the stakes high to keep democratic candidates in office, Associate Political Director of the National Democratic Training Committee, Jocelyn Hunt says its all starts at the local level.

"Those local elections have such big impact on our day-to-day life and sometimes things we don't even realize they affect. It is so important that people know that they exist, know who their representatives are and also want to get involved and help elect people that represent them in that community," Hunt said.

Taking a bottom-up approach, the committee wants to penetrate more democrats into local leadership, offering running candidates the chance to learn the tricks of the trade.

"Georgia is continuing to grow in being a bigger democratic stronghold state as the party begins to work to elect people. This year they have more people running on the ballot then they have in years before," Hunt said.

Everything from campaign emails, digital fundraising, and field exercises was spelled out.

Driving nearly two hours to soak up all the of the gems challenging candidate Mica Smith says she wouldn't miss it.

"Working with the Democratic National Committee gave me a wealth of information to help prepare me for my campaign, the opportunity to network with other democrats doing similar things in the state helped me build a stronger base that will help build a better Georgia," Smith said.

With over 500,000 positions fit to be filled in each election cycle, Smith isn't just focused on right now, but the years to come.

"One of the things I can commit to is if I do not make it this time, I'll be ready for the election in 2024," Smith said.
