Sunday Georgians get to Spring Forward to Daylight Savings Time

Daylight Saving Time starts at 2 a.m. on March 8, 2020. Georgians, along with most of the country, get to turn their clocks forward 1 hour to 3 a.m. local daylight time. According to the website timeanddate.com, most of the United States, including Georgia, will maintain this time until 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1, 2020, when the time will “fall back” once again to Eastern Standard Time.

In the United States, Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and most of Arizona don’t change their clocks, but the rest of the country does. Sunrise and sunset will be about 1 hour later on Mar 8, 2020, than the day before. There will be more light in the evening after what is also called Spring Forward, Summer Time, and Daylight Savings Time.

This year, however, could be the last time this change happens. If House Bill 709 makes it through the Georgia General Assembly this session, citizens could give their opinion on the ballot in November on whether or not they want this practice to continue.
