DeKalb’s Board of Registration and Elections recently approved changes to four polling locations ahead of the Nov. 2 General Election.

Due to various issues including ongoing construction at previous polling locations, some voters in Chamblee, Doraville and Stonecrest may be assigned a new polling location this election cycle.

DeKalb Voter Registration and Election also announced that impacted voters will receive correspondence in the mail with information regarding their new polling location.

The polling location previously at the Chamblee Civic Center, 3540 Broad Street, is now at Chamblee Public Safety/Municipal Court, 4445 Buford Highway NE.

The polling location previously at Doraville City Hall, 3725 Park Avenue, is now at Doraville Civic Center, 3770 Central Ave.

Voters who believe they may be impacted by the polling location change can contact DeKalb VRE by visiting or calling 404-298-4020 or 1-866-DEK-VOTES. On Election Day, DeKalb VRE will have staff stationed at changed polling locations to redirect voters. Signage will also be posted onsite at previous polling locations to alert voters of the change.
