More than two hundred voters have taken advantage of early voting in DeKalb County for the March 6 primaries.
Dennis Stanley, Administrator of Elections, said so far things have gone well. "The first four days of early voting have gone extremely well. To date, we have not had anyone come to early voting who did not have a valid photo ID. Thanks to all the publicity given by WJLE and other local media, along with the massive effort made by our state office, we believe a majority of the voters are aware of the new law, and for that we are extremely thankful," said Stanley
A total of 207 persons have voted early from Wednesday through Saturday, February 15-18 including thirty three on Saturday.
One hundred thirty three have voted in the Democratic Primaries and seventy four have cast ballots in the Republican primary.
Early voting resumes Tuesday, February 21 through Tuesday, February 28. Hours are Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.; Thursdays from 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.; and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. until noon. All early voting will take place in the basement courtroom of the DeKalb County Courthouse. Closed February 20 for President's Day.
Remember, DeKalb County residents are required to show a photo ID at the polls.
