Precinct Changes

Virus forces DeKalb to relocate 19 election day voting precincts

Some two weeks prior to election day, DeKalb County is changing the location of 19 voting precincts.

The precincts had to be relocated due to the coronavirus pandemic, officials said, with some venues like retirement communities and churches opting not to host voting on June 9 due to concerns about the virus’ potential spread. 

New locations have been identified for 16 of the affected precincts. But new locations are still being sought for three regular voting sites, all in the Decatur area: First Baptist Church of Decatur, Holy Trinity Parish and Oakhurst Baptist Church.

Relocated precincts, most of which are in the northern part of the county, include those listed below. The new locations were approved Friday by the county elections board.

County officials said affected voters will be notified by mail.

The precinct changes do not affect early voting, which is currently being offered at these locations.

DeKalb County also recently added new drop boxes for absentee ballots. Boxes are now available near the elections office at 4390 Memorial Drive in Decatur; at Exchange Park, 2771 Columbia Drive in Decatur; and at Brookhaven City Hall, 4362 Peachtree Road NE in Brookhaven.
