DeKalb elections director says early runoff turnout ‘kind of historic’

With Election Day looming, DeKalb County officials are reminding voters that a handful of polling places have changed locations.

Including one change approved earlier this week, a total of six polling places will be at new locations for Tuesday’s election. Most are due to construction or other logistical issues at the existing polling places, officials said.

The changes are as follows:

  • Voters who usually cast ballots at the Chamblee Civic Center (3540 Broad St. in Chamblee) will instead vote at the Chamblee Public Safety/Municipal Court building (4445 Buford Highway NE).
  • Voters who usually cast ballots at Doraville City Hall (3725 Park Ave. in Doraville) will instead vote at the Doraville Civic Center (377 Central Ave.).

  • Voters who usually cast ballots at Rock of Ages Lutheran Church (5135 Memorial Drive in Stone Mountain) will instead vote at the Georgia Piedmont Technical College Clarkston Campus (495 N. Indian Creek Drive).
  • Voters who usually cast ballots at the City of Stonecrest annex (the former Sears building at Stonecrest Mall, 2929 Tuner Hill Road) will instead vote at the Stonecrest Library (3123 Klondike Road).
  • Voters who usually cast ballots at Victory Church (1170 North Hairston Road in Stone Mountain) will instead vote at Stone Mill Elementary School (4900 Sheila Lane).
  • Voters who usually cast ballots at Ray of Hope Christian Church (2778 Snapfinger Road in Decatur). will instead vote at the church’s nearby education building (2767 Snapfinger Road).

DeKalb elections officials said staff will be at changed polling locations to redirect voters. Signage will also be posted on-site.

Voters with questions can also contact the elections office by visiting DeKalbVotes.com or calling 404-298-4020 or 1-866-DEK-VOTES.

Tuesday’s election includes a number of municipal races throughout DeKalb, as well as a countywide vote on renewing an education SPLOST.

DeKalb County is also home to about 10% of the city of Atlanta, which has a high-profile mayoral race on the ballot.
