Atlanta, GA — May 20 is the last day of early voting in the May 24 primary election.

The hours for advanced voting today are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. To see your sample ballot, visit the Georgia Secretary of State’s My Voter Page by clicking here.

After May 20, there are two ways to vote: by absentee ballot and in-person on May 24, Election Day.

Voters age 75 and older, or those with a physical disability, should go to the front of the line and ask a poll worker for assistance.

Early voting locations are:

– Berean Christian Church, 2201 Young Road, Stone Mountain, GA 30088

According to the Senate Bill 202 voting law, drop boxes are only placed inside early voting locations and at the county’s election office. When early voting ends on May 20, the only accessible drop box will be at Memorial Drive.

Absentee ballots must be returned by 7 p.m. on May 24 to a drop box at DeKalb Voter Registration and Elections office, 4380 Memorial Drive, Decatur, GA 30032.

Election Day precincts are open on May 24 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Voters can check their precinct here.

Provisional ballots have changed. If a voter tries to vote at a different precinct, their vote will not count unless it is after 5 p.m. on Election Day.

The bottom line is, voters should double check precinct changes before going to the polls.

Approximately 56,500 voters in DeKalb will be impacted by recent redistricting efforts that have changed their Election Day voting precincts, according to a press release.
