“If you don’t vote, you get what you get”, says DeKalb County interim CEO Lee May.
Early voting begins on Monday, October 13, 2014, in Georgia for the November election. According to DeKalb County Director of Registrations and Elections Maxine Daniels , “In DeKalb County, we will be voting 7am to 7pm, Monday through Friday.”
There will be three locations for early voting in Dekalb, at the main office at 4380 Memorial Drive, with two voting sites within the office says Daniels, “one for seniors and disabled voters and the other for everyone else.” The two other locations are at the Tucker Recreation Center at 4898 Lavista Road and at South DeKalb Mall at 2801 Candler Road. The mall location will be open for early voting from 11am to 8pm.
According to Fulton County Director of Elections and Registrations Richard Barron, ballots for the election are posted on-line, “to allow residents the opportunity to review the candidates running for office”.
There will be 7 early voting locations in Fulton County. They will be open from 7am to 7pm on weekdays, and on Saturdays from 8am to 5pm. The number of sites will expand to 19 during the last two weeks of early voting.
A number of statewide seats are up for grabs, including Governor and Lt. Governor. Michelle Nunn and David Perdue are vying for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Saxby Chambliss.
Voters are required to bring a picture identification, which Daniels says can be a drivers license, “current or expired”. And Daniels reminds voters that they are not to wear “any type of political attire.”
Sunday voting will begin on October 26, 2014, in several counties including DeKalb, Fulton, Floyd, and Athens-Clarke County.
The early voting period will end on October 31, 2014.
