DeKalb County Voter Registration and Elections (DeKalb VRE) has finalized details for the special election to fill the vacant Georgia House District 90 seat, previously held by long-time lawmaker Pamela Stephenson. On Friday, Jan. 15, DeKalb VRE’s board unanimously approved early voting and drop box locations for the Democratic primary election.

Advance voting begins Jan. 19 and concludes Feb. 5. Election Day is Feb. 9.

“Our office has actively been planning to prepare for the special election and has already started mailing absentee ballot applications on Jan. 10, so some voters may already have their applications in their mailboxes,” said DeKalb VRE Director Erica Hamilton. “With all the energy around our latest election cycle, we want to encourage those registered voters in House District 90 to come back to the polls for this special election.”

DeKalb VRE leaders also are encouraging voters opting to vote in person to practice social distancing and wear a mask to the polling locations.

“For your safety and ours, we strongly recommend voters follow CDC’s guidelines while in public,” Hamilton said. “We will actively clean polling machines and hard surfaces at all of our precincts but ask the community to also remain vigilant in helping us combat this pandemic while exercising their right to vote.”

Advance Voting Information

DeKalb VRE will host advance voting at two locations beginning Jan. 19 through Feb 5. Voting will take place during those days, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Weekend voting is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 30, 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
