“My understanding was the principal moved them” to the gym on Monday, Daniels said. “They did not notify our office. We cannot move it” in the middle of voting.
But she said no one is being turned away.
Daniels said she was looking into a similar complaint at Dresden Elementary after the AJC was notified by a voter.
Sally Shornick said she has been voting at the Chamblee school for years, in the library. She arrived to find that she had to walk down a long flight of stairs to the gym, where voting had moved.
She said she asked if there was another way and was told no.
“There was no ramp," Shornick said, adding that she is worried anyone who is in a wheelchair won't be able to vote. "It was just stairs. Concrete stairs and railing.”
In Dunwoody, a small electrical fire caused a brief evacuation at All Saints Catholic Church. Daniels said she was attempting to keep the precinct open an extra 30 minutes to compensate.
Otherwise, Daniels said, Election Day is going smoothly in DeKalb.
