Early Voting Available in DeKalb County. 1 More Day, Poll Hours Extended

Atlanta, GA--  Early Voting just got a little more convenient in DeKalb County. 

In an effort to increase voter turnout in DeKalb County, Chief Executive Officer Burrell Ellis and Board of Commissioners Presiding Officer Larry Johnson announced that the Elections Office would be open for Early Voting on Saturday, Oct. 16 and 23, at 4380 Memorial Dr., in Decatur.  Now that the Saturday Voting is over,you still have 1 more day for Early Voting. Poll Hours have been extended this week.

During Advance Voting week only, Oct. 25-29, four additional sites with extended hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. will be offered to DeKalb County voters.  Locations in addition to the Memorial Drive Main Office for that week are:


Clark Harrison Building

The unprecedented Saturday voting is part of the Vote DeKalb initiative, a non-partisan early voting campaign.  The purpose of Vote DeKalb is to encourage voters to cast ballots prior to the Nov. 2 General Election.  

The campaign has charged organizations in the county to encourage their members to get involved in the political process by establishing a 100 percent early-voting campaign. The goal is to drive an additional 100,000 early voters to the polls before the Nov. 2 election.
