There have been no lines to report at the polls in DeKalb, although voting is continuing to move steadily said Mary Francis Weeks, administrative assistant for the DeKalb County Board of Registrations.

The following is an update on voter turnout since 4:00 p.m. earlier today:

-Decatur had 968 votes cast.

-Chamblee had 387 votes cast while the Chamblee annexation special election has received 618 votes.

-Doraville and Stone Mountain each had about 250 votes cast.

-Dunwoody has experienced the most voting activity, with 2,916 votes cast.

Although Weeks said the turnout is decent in the county, she said municipal voting “is not nearly as busy as presidential election season.”

Voting ends at 7 p.m. in DeKalb.
