Early Voting Now Under Way
Those wishing to avoid election-day lines in Paulding now have a place to go. More polling sites will open in the coming weeks.
Paulding voters will have several opportunities this month to beat the election-day lines. The first such chance began this morning in Dallas.
Early voting began at 8 a.m. in the Paulding County Elections office in the Watson Government Complex; the polls will close for the day at 5 p.m. The 8-to-5 schedule for voting at the elections office will remain in place each weekday until Nov. 2.
Information about some of the general election races can be found in our Election Guide.
Advance voting will open up at three satellite offices the week of Oct. 29—Poplar Springs Baptist Church, 2056 Hiram Douglasville Highway, Hiram; Mount Tabor Park, 1550 East Paulding Drive, Dallas; and the Crossroads Library, 909 Harmony Grove Church Road, Acworth. Voting hours at the three locations will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday; and 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday.
Voters who do not take advantage of early or advance voting will have one last chance to cast in-person ballots on Nov. 6, the actual day of the election. Those voters will report to their normal polling places.
