All DeKalb County registered voters will receive new precinct cards within the next two weeks informing them of their new districts and possibly new voting locations.

The district changes are the result of the decennial reapportionment required after the 2010 census. A few voting location changes resulted from closed schools and churches, as well as polling place consolidation for efficiency.

Precinct cards are not required to vote, but are simply an informational tool to inform voters of their polling location and the districts for which they are eligible to cast their ballot. Voters who do not receive a new card are encouraged to verify their voting information by visiting on the Secretary of State’s website.

Voters are also encouraged to visit the DeKalb County Voter Registration & Elections website at to stay abreast of all things regarding the 2012 election year including sample countywide ballots. Voters may also visit on the Secretary of State’s website to see a copy of your voter specific ballot.

In person early voting will commence July 9 at the Voter Registration & Elections main office, 4380 Memorial Drive and will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, through July 27, plus two Saturdays, July 14 and 21. A special precinct designed for the elderly and disabled will be operating at the main location in addition to a regular precinct. Additional sites located throughout the county will be available July 23 to 27.

To find the one nearest to you, check under “current election information” or call (404) 298-4020.
