Advance Voting in DeKalb: Dec. 14 – Dec. 31


The DeKalb County Board of Voter Registration and Elections has announced the locations and operating hours of the advance voting locations for the Jan. 5, 2021 runoff election. Advance Voting in DeKalb County begins Dec. 14 and ends Dec. 31. The complete list of locations can be viewed online at

“DeKalb is proud to announce our initial 13 advance voting locations across the county,” said Erica Hamilton, director of DeKalb County’s Voter Registration and Elections. “We are working to include an additional location, so I encourage voters to check our website frequently for updates if they plan on voting early for the upcoming runoff elections.”

While many of the advance voting locations are the same as the General Election, there are a few changes, including a staggered schedule at two locations. Decatur Recreation Center will begin advance voting Dec. 14 but will conclude on Dec. 20.  Advance voting at Agnes Scott College will begin Dec. 21 and conclude Dec. 31.

COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place at all in-person voting locations. Poll workers will be wearing masks and face shields and will use hand sanitizer frequently. Voting equipment will be cleaned hourly at a minimum, and all voters will receive a disposable stylus to use while voting. Voters are strongly encouraged to wear masks and practice social distancing while waiting in line.

“With our advance voting, including select Saturday and Sunday options, we hope all registered voters in DeKalb County are planning for when and how they will cast their ballot,” said Hamilton. “We are also reminding voters that absentee ballots cannot be left at advance voting locations. Absentee ballots must be mailed in or dropped off at one of our drop box locations, which are posted on the website.”
