In order to provide equal availability of advance voting to the voters of Dunwoody for the 6th Congressional District runoff election, the Board of Registration and Elections announced the relocation of the advance voting site from Dunwoody Library to Dunwoody Methodist Church, located at 1548 Mt. Vernon Road, according to a DeKalb County press release. The voting period and hours will now be the same as the other advance voting locations.

The reason for the move was because the library was not able for the full three weeks and state Sen. Fran Millar was able to step in and have his church provide the space for early voting, according to Maxine Daniels, director of DeKalb County Registration & Elections.

“The Board of Registration & Elections wanted to have locations and hours that were the same throughout the district but the Library was not available for the full three weeks,” Daniels said in a statement. [S]enator Fran Millar was kind enough to secure his church for the full three weeks, allowing us to offer the same opportunity to the Dunwoody voters as the other areas.  The department was able to do this without a board meeting since this was not a policy change.”

The cost to rent the church for the three weeks is “virtually free,” Davis added.

  1. You missed why this happened. Like Sunday voting this area was being slighted. Action was taken for equal access. Appreciate Dunwoody Methodist (Jim Boyea and Dan Brown) stepping up when asked.
