DeKalb County: Guide to In-Person Voting 
Early Voting for Congressional District 5 - Special Election Runoff:  Nov. 9 - Nov. 25



Vote early in-person. 

The only designated early voting location for the Special Election is the DeKalb VRE office, located at 4380 Memorial Drive, in Decatur. Early voting for the Special Election runoff begins Nov. 9 and concludes Nov. 25 and is available Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. with Saturday voting on Nov. 21 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

If you are a voter with a physical disability or are 75 years of age and older, you do not need to wait in line. Just walk to the entrance and a poll worker will assist you in casting your ballot. 

Restrooms are available if needed. Please be sure to wear a mask and practice social distancing at all times. We encourage you to be a good neighbor while waiting in line.  


What to bring with you for in-person voting. 

  • A valid ID, such as a driver’s license, passport, or voter identification card
  • A mask to help ensure your safety and the safety of the poll workers and voters around you.
  • Chair, water, and snacks if the location has a long wait line 
  • Your absentee ballot if you are wanting to vote in-person instead. If you do not have your absentee ballot, you will need to sign an affidavit stating that you are instead casting your ballot in-person.
