Voting has been quick and easy this week at an early voting poll Decatur, usually taking no more than 10 minutes with no wait in line.
That changed Friday afternoon.
About 3 p.m., the line wrapped around the corner of the Clark Harrison Building on West Ponce. Voters said it was taking about 30 minutes to cast a ballot.
That's still probably quicker than the wait to vote on Election Day--Tuesday, Nov. 6.
The polls will be open through 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2, at six places.
- Clark Harrison Building at 330 W. Ponce de Leon Ave., Room A.
- DeKalb Voter Registration & Elections Office at 4380 Memorial Drive, Suite 300, Decatur 30032. This office has special voting facilities for the elderly and disabled.
