The DeKalb County Board of Elections stepped up its game for the presidential primary and sheriff’s election, unanimously approving on Thursday a staff plan to open 12 early voting sites across the county, many of them with expanded hours. (DeKalb operates two polling locations at its main office, with one set up for voters with disabilities.)

Several polling locations will be open on two Saturdsays, March 7 and 17 and one Sunday, March 15. The big change from the past is keeping three polling locations–main office and Dunwoody Library, and South DeKalb Mall–will have extended hours of operation until 8 pm. The Board’s action drew applause from the crowd—not a thing that happens often.

This year, the Board added a new early voting site, House of Hope Church in South DeKalb, which may help alleviate the long lines and wait times at South DeKalb Mall, where the poll opens later than other locations, at 9 a.m. due to mall hours.

Any DeKalb voter can vote at any of the early voting locations during the advanced voting period. For updates and other information, visit the Board of Election website or follow @DeKalbVotes on Twitter. An new website is scheduled to come online in early March.

Three early voting locations will be open for three weeks, from March 2 through March 20.
