Election 101: Do You Know Your Precinct?

Voters in Clairemont West have a new polling place -- the Church at Decatur Heights, 735 Sycamore Drive.

Voters in Decatur and Avondale Estates can vote from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 6, in the General Election.

There's no early voting. That ended Friday.

Of course, the headline election is for president, with incumbent Democrat Barak Obama facing Republican Mitt Romney.

There's also some state legislature races and two referendums, one on charter schools and the other on whether to allow multi-year leases for state buildings.

Here's where people living in the city limits of Decatur and Avondale Estates can vote.

Please note that the Clairemont West precinct has changed to The Church at Decatur Heights, 735 Sycamore Drive.  The old location was the Lutheran Church of Messiah, 465 Clairemont Ave.

I am in Clairemont West and recently received a new Dekalb Precinct card stating that the polling place is now The Church at Decatur Heights, 735 Sycamore Drive in Decatur.

Links to poll locator on Secretary of State's website not working right now. Probably overloaded. Not sure it's to the advantage of those who lead the State to make it easy for voters to find where their polling place has moved.
