Early voting hours for the November Presidential Election have been set by the DeKalb County Election Commission.
As was the case for the August balloting, the commission voted to have two afternoons of early voting in an effort to accommodate more voters.

Hours for early voting, which begins October 17, are Mondays from Noon until 5 p.m.; Tuesdays 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.; Wednesdays 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.; Thursdays from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.; Fridays from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.; and Saturdays 9 a.m. until Noon.

During the early voting period, which ends Nov. 1, there are 2 Mondays, 3 Thursdays and 2 Saturdays, giving voters who work late or work out of town ample opportunity to vote early.

“With the interest we’ve seen in the upcoming election, we really hope people will take advantage of early voting,” said Dennis Stanley, Administrator of Elections. “We strongly believe the turnout overall will be much heavier than the other two county-wide elections this year, so it makes sense to take advantage of early voting and try to avoid a long line at your precinct on election day.”

A day-by-day breakdown of early voting hours are:

WED. OCT. 17—9 A.M. TO 1 P.M.
THURS. OCT. 18—2 P.M. TO 6 P.M.
FRI. OCT. 19—9 A.M. TO 1 P.M.
