Get out and vote!

by Heather S

Hopefully, you have already registered to vote, since yesterday was the deadline for the upcoming presidential election. If you are registered to vote, remember that you can avoid the lines on November 4th by voting by absentee ballot by mail or in person, or by voting in advance.

To request an absentee ballot to vote via the mail, you can print the application online at the DeKalb County Voter Registration or the Secretary of State Elections Division’s website or stop by the DeKalb County Voter Registration and Elections Main Office at 4380 Memorial Drive, Suite 300, Decatur, GA 30032.

To vote by absentee ballot in person, you can stop by the DeKalb County Voter Registration and Elections Main Office and vote Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. 

You can vote in advance starting on October 27 and ending on October 31. You may vote Monday through Friday, 7:00 am to 7:00 pm at one of several locations around DeKalb County.

Be sure to verify your registration and locate your precinct/district information. To do this, you can enter in the necessary information at the Secretary of State’s Poll Locator website or by calling their Voter Info Line at 1-888-265-1115. You can also call the DeKalb County Precinct Info Line at 404-373-2236 or 404-298-4020, which is their office number.
