DeKalb County has now relocated two dozen election day voting precincts due to coronavirus and related concerns.
Most of the affected precincts are in northern DeKalb and the Decatur area.
“Some of the locations, such as churches, have not reopened due to the pandemic,” county spokesman Andrew Cauthen said. “Other locations, such as senior living facilities, are not available due to COVID-19 related concerns.”
The changes are only for those hoping to cast ballots in person on Tuesday, June 9.
Advance in-person voting is still available through Friday and is being offered at eight different locations. State and local officials have also encouraged voters to cast absentee ballots, which can still be requested through Friday but must be returned by the time polls close Tuesday.
Absentee ballot dropboxes are currently available at four locations throughout the count : Exchange Park (2771 Columbia Drive, Decatur); Brookhaven City Hall (4362 Peachtree Road NE, Brookhaven); Stonecrest City Hall (3120 Stonecrest Blvd., Stonecrest); and near the county elections office (4380 Memorial Drive, Decatur).
The election day voting precinct changes are listed below. Those with questions can contact the DeKalb elections office at 404-298-4020.
Officials said that affected voters will be notified by mail and signs will be posted at relocated precincts.
