DeKalb Voter Registration and Elections Expands Weekend Voting Options to Include Sunday Voting
Absentee Ballots Mailed Oct. 12, Six Drop Boxes Across the County
DECATUR, GA - The DeKalb Voter Registration and Elections (VRE) Board recently approved the expansion of voting options during the upcoming election. DeKalb voters now have two Sunday advance voting options on Oct. 17 and Oct. 24., noon until 5 p.m. on both days at all designated Advance Voting locations.
"It is vital that DeKalb voters have every opportunity to cast their ballots during the advance voting period and on Election Day, so it was essential that the Board explored an option to add two Sunday voting days this election cycle,” said recently appointed DeKalb VRE Board Member Karli Swift, who advocated for the expansion of Sunday voting. “I, along with my colleagues on the Board, believe that giving voters access to the polls is a fundamental role of our job as Board members."
