13 locations plus 6 drop box sites set for May 24 primary election.

DEKALB COUNTY

DeKalb County has finalized its list of early voting locations and absentee ballot drop boxes.

The county’s election board recently approved 13 early voting locations and six drop box spots for the May 24 primary election at a recent meeting. DeKalb Elections Director Keisha Smith said redistricting had nothing to do with any relocated early voting precincts.

Residents will have a lot to consider during the primary election.

There are multiple DeKalb Board of Education races and three county commission seats on the ballot. There are federal races for Congress in addition to statewide races and for the state Legislature. Stonecrest residents will also have a special election for mayor to fill the rest of Jason Lary’s term after he resigned and pled guilty to federal fraud charges.

Advanced voting will begin May 2 and end May 20. Early voting locations will be open on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
