DeKalb County Board of Elections announces that Dunwoody High School is no longer a DeKalb County Polling Place

 No voting at Dunwoody High School on Nov 7th (or anytime in the future).


The DeKalb County Board of Registration and Elections (R&E Board) hereby gives notice to the voters of DeKalb County of the following proposed polling place changes will be effective for the November 7th Municipal/Special Elections and all subsequent elections.

The polling place for the Dunwoody High precinct will be relocated from Dunwoody High School to Kingswood United Methodist Church, located at 5015 Tilly Mill Road, Dunwoody, 30338. This change is proposed because the DeKalb Board of Education has notified the R&E Board that Dunwoody High is no longer available.

The City of Dunwoody has requested that early voting be made available a week prior to all actual elections at the Dunwoody Library (for a small cost to the city) and the DeKalb Board of Elections will be deciding on that request on October 12th.
