November 8 Election: has your polling place changed?

From Sharon...
Just a reminder that there will be an election on November 8, 2011.
Some of the issues we will vote on are:
  • the Education SPLOST only (since we are in unincorporated Dekalb)
  • DeKalb County School Board members
  • a transportation SPLOST
  • we will vote on whatever representative elections are needed in 2012.
  • they are still discussing the Sunday sale of alcohol so that may be added to the ballot at some point.
The voter registration deadline is October 11, 2011
The folks at Dekalb Voter Registration and Election offices are very helpful. Their website at has not been updated as far as ballot content but it has links to other information such as voter registration.
New precinct cards have been mailed (some neighbors received theirs today, marked "NOTE: PRECINCT CHANGE"). If voted at Medlock Elementary you will more than likely now vote at North Decatur Presbyterian Church (611 Medlock Road), for the year 2011. A new polling place will be permanently assigned and announced after the redistricting decisions are made, in time for the 2012 elections.
