When is the next election?
Due to the Public Health State of Emergency, Georgia’s Secretary of State has postponed both the Presidential Preference Primary, originally scheduled for March 24, and the General Election Primary, originally scheduled for May 19. Both primaries are now scheduled for June 9.
- In-person early voting will resume on May 18 and run until June 5. However, in-person voting locations will likely be limited due to COVID-19-related health concerns.
We are encouraging voters to vote by mail by visiting DeKalbVotes.com and requesting an absentee ballot. However, we want to make sure everyone is informed of all of their options. Note that there is no voting on Memorial Day (May 25). You must vote at your precinct on Tuesday, June 9, 7 am – 7 pm. Below is a breakdown of early vote locations and times:
The Presidential Primary is coming March 24th and with it will be new voting machines and procedures for casting your ballot. Be sure to watch the video below from the office of the Secretary of State to familiarize yourself with the new system.
