Early voting for this fall’s elections begins Monday in DeKalb County.

Every registered voter in the county — in both cities and unincorporated areas — will be able to head to the polls, since there is a countywide referendum on the proposal to restructure the DeKalb ethics board.

But in the county’s 12 cities, residents will also be able to vote in municipal elections for mayor and/or City Council.

Here are all the details on early voting in DeKalb, according to the county elections department: 

When you can vote: Early voting runs Monday through Friday from Monday, Oct. 14 until Friday, Nov. 1. Polls will be open from 8 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. There will be no voting on Saturdays or Sundays.

Where you can vote: The county is offering four early voting locations. You can go to any of them, no matter where your assigned precinct is. But on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 5, you must go to your assigned precinct. Here are the early voting sites:

  • Briarwood Recreation Center; 2235 Briarwood Way, Brookhaven GA 30319
