Changes in Early Voting
Changes in Voting Location for 6th District Early Voting (from the AJC)
Fulton County announced on Wednesday that is changing the locations of 12 polling places for the June 20 election when voters will decide if Jon Ossoff or Karen Handel will fill the congressional seat in Georgia’s 6th District.
The county cited “unforeseen circumstances” as to why the locations changed.
“The locations will either be undergoing renovations or have scheduled events. The timing of this election is causing us to make these changes,” Richard Baron, Fulton County’s director of registration and elections, said in a statement. “I strongly encourage residents to take a moment to verify if they are affected by the changes prior to Election Day.”
Fulton County says it mailed 109,296 notification letters to voters on Monday and that concerned residents should check online to find out if the changes affect their polling place.
The changes are:
All voters who registered to vote by the Sunday, May 21, deadline and who live in the district are eligible to vote in the runoff, even if they did not vote on April 18.
Voters with questions about the elections or their voter status are encouraged to visit the Secretary of State’s “My Voter Page” at mvp.sos.state.ga.gov or contact the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections at 404-612-7020.

6th District runoff: Early voting site changed in Dunwoody
Election officials are moving the Dunwoody’s early voting site for the 6th Congressional District runoff to a location that will be open for three weeks instead of just one.
Voters will be able to cast ballots in advance at the Dunwoody Methodist Church on weekdays from May 30 to June 16, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Early voting is also available on Saturday, June 10, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Dunwoody Library is no longer an early voting site for the runoff between Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff.
Four other locations – in Brookhaven, Chamblee, Tucker and central DeKalb – were already scheduled to be open for three weeks of early voting.
Any registered voter in the 6th District can vote at any of the early voting sites. But for those who wait until Election Day on June 20, they’ll have to vote at their assigned precincts.
Dunwoody Methodist Church is located at 1548 Mount Vernon Road.
