MARIETTA — Today is the last day of early voting in Cobb, and through Wednesday, 85,870 Cobb voters had already cast their ballots in person and by mail for the Nov. 6 election.
Any registered voter may go to any of the nine sites open today around the county for early voting. On Tuesday, 153 precincts will be open, though on that day, voters must go to their assigned polling location.
Today, the main elections office at 736 Whitlock Ave. in Marietta is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for early voting. The other sites will be open today from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Those locations are: the Cobb Civic Center, in Marietta; the East Cobb Government Service Center; Noonday Baptist Church on Canton Road; the Smyrna Community Center; NorthStar Church in Kennesaw; the Boots Ward Recreation Center in west Cobb; and the South Cobb Community Center and the South Cobb Recreation Center.
Voters can check wait times for the various locations through the Cobb Elections website, elections.cobbcountyga.gov/WaitTimes.php. The page is updated four times each day.
As of 3 p.m. Thursday, for example, the page showed wait times of 75 minutes at the East Cobb Government Service Center and at NorthStar Church in Kennesaw. The wait was just 5 minutes at the South Cobb Recreation Center.
Those planning to vote on Tuesday can find their polling location through the Secretary of State’s website, www.sos.ga.gov/mvp.
The Georgia Secretary of State’s website will also be the main source for elections returns after the polls close at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Cobb Elections Director Janine Eveler said she hopes to be finished tabulating all of the county’s returns “very early” Wednesday morning.
