Last month the New Georgia Encyclopedia published “On the Stump: ¬†What Does It Take to Get Elected in Georgia,” an exhibition written by Jan Hebbard, Kaylynn Washnock, and Ashton Ellett. This digital slideshow features newly digitized photos and original research on the history of elections in modern Georgia, from the turn of the century to the 2012 presidential election. It follows candidates as they decide to run, craft a strategy, win nominations, shake hands, kiss babies, and await the election results.
