Yep, today's the day. Voters in many Georgia cities and counties — including Atlanta and Decatur — will visit the polls to decide whether stores should be allowed to sell alcohol on Sundays.

Other elections and ballot initiatives will be decided, including whether a 1-cent sales tax benefitting Atlanta Public Schools should be extended. Voters will also choose a new board member for the school system's 2nd district.

But c'mon, we know you're interested in the booze. And if you want that freedom, you need to exercise your civic duty and cast a ballot. Here's Scott Henry's two-part take on the sales-tax extension and how it factors into upcoming ballot initiatives, including the sewer-tax extension and T-SPLOST. Here's a rundown on the school board candidates.

Polls opened at 7 a.m. and will close at 7 p.m. Locate your local polling place and view a sample ballot here. And don't forget to bring one of these six forms of identification to the polls. Notice any shenanigans at your polling place? Send us a line or leave details — or any other interesting observations — in the comments.

We'll keep a close eye on the results so check back for updates.
