DeKalb Superior Court Judge Tangela Barrie has signed an order approving a petition by the Board of Registration and Elections to extend voting hours to 9:30 p.m. for all DeKalb County polling places that were still open at 7 p.m.
If a voter arrived after 7 p.m. at any of those locations, they will be able to vote as long as they are in line by 9:30 p.m.
For the following polling place, voting has been extended to the indicated time:
- Ray of Hope Christian Church, 2778 Snapfinger Road, Decatur—10:10 p.m.
The petition to extend the hours for all polling places was made as the result of a delay in voting due to mechanical issue with voting machines and state-issued social distancing requirements, impacting the number of voting machines allowed in each precinct. This extension was requested, in an abundance of caution, to ensure that all electors at the locations have the required full 12 hours of voting.
Questions on this matter should be referred to the Registration and Elections office at 404-298-4020.
