The board also approved a simplified application for absentee ballots.

For more complete coverage of the board’s September meeting, read “What if they held a meeting and everybody came?”

There is also a countywide referendum on ethics reforms–a do-over, so to speak, after courts ruled that DeKalb’s ethics board was unconstitutional because most of its members were not picked by elected officials. There will be a series of town halls on this and other subjects hosted by DeKalb’s legislative delegation. For more information on the town halls and the issues involved, check out the AJC’s coverage.

Here’s the schedule for those information meetings:

Sept. 16, 2019, 6:30–8 p.m., Lou Walker Senior Center Victory Room, 2538 Panola Road, Lithonia;

Oct. 1, 6:30–8 p.m., Tucker-Reid H. Cofer Library, 5234 LaVista Road, Tucker;
