Early voting starts today

Posted By on Wed, Nov 18, 2009 at 4:04 PM

Thought you fulfilled your duty as a citizen on Nov. 3? Think again! Several local races are still undecided, and from now until Nov. 20 you can vote early to beat the Dec. 1 "crowds" (aka five voters who turn out for runoffs).

Among the contested races:

  • Atlanta mayor, between Mary Norwood and Kasim Reed.

  • Atlanta City Council president, between Ceasar Mitchell and Clair Muller.

  • Atlanta City Council Post 2 At-Large, between Amir Farokhi and Aaron Watson.

  • Atlanta City Council District 6, between Liz Coyle and Alex Wan.

  • State House District 58, between Simone Bell and Asha Jackson.

  • State Senate District 35, between Donzella James and Torrey O Johnson.

From Nov. 23-25, you can participate in Advance Voting. After that, your last chance to vote for the city's next elected officials is Dec. 1. If you registered prior to Oct. 5, you should be good to go. If you didn't vote on Nov. 3, you can still come out and cast a ballot for the runoff. Remember to bring a photo ID and thank the kind folks manning the polls.

After the jump, we present a Fulton and DeKalb County poll location list that we've shamefully pulled from the City of Atlanta's "Election Central" portal.
