Where to Vote on Election Day

Elections for federal, state, and county offices are conducted at county polling places. Not sure which polling place is yours? Visit the Georgia Secretary of State’s My Voter Page for the most up-to-date information.

If you reside in one of the four cities, then your municipal polling place may be different than your county location. The state’s website linked above will have both locations if this applies to you.

Unlike early voting discussed below, Election Day voters must vote at their assigned polling place.

Early Voting Schedule

Three weeks of Early Voting are provided for every election, including weekend voting, at several locations throughout the county. Voters may participate at whichever location is most convenient to them.

Meet the Candidates

Voters in house district 90 have a special Democratic Primary election on February 9, 2021. House district 90 includes parts of DeKalb, Henry, and Rockdale Counties. Seven candidates qualified for the open seat in the Georgia General Assembly.

The open seat was created following the resignation of State Representative Pam Stephenson. Stephenson resigned in September 2020 for personal health reasons.
