MARIETTA — Cobb Elections Director Janine Eveler reminds voters that the last day to register before the Nov. 6 general election is Oct. 9.

Registered voters who have moved and have not notified Cobb Elections need to do so no later than Oct. 9 to vote at their proper precinct. Voters who have moved should not assume that they are still registered.

A voter cannot be removed from the rolls until he has been notified, but if a voter moved, the notification may have been sent to an old address, Eveler said.

Registration applications are available at, by emailing or by calling (770) 528-2581.

Eveler also reminds voters to check their registration and polling location before going to the polls on Election Day. The easiest way to check is to go online to the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page at and view a sample ballot personalized for your voting districts.

Eveler said while she is not making any turnout predictions, based on her experience in 2008 she doesn’t expect long waits at the polls.

“With 153 voting locations open for 12 hours on election day, the demand should be well-dispersed,” she said. “However, we know some people like to vote early, so those who prefer not to vote at their polling location on Election Day may vote in advance.”

Early and advance voting will be available at the following locations:

* Weekdays from Oct. 15 through Nov. 2, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the main Elections office, located at 736 Whitlock Ave. in Marietta.

* Oct. 25 and 26, between 8:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., at the Cobb County Civic Center, 548 S. Marietta Pkwy, Marietta, 30060.

* Oct 27, from 9 a.m. to 4 a.m., at the main Elections office and the Cobb County Civic Center.

* From Oct. 29 to Nov. 2 from 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Cobb County Civic Center, 548 S. Marietta Parkway, Marietta; East Cobb Government Service Center, 4400 Lower Roswell Road, Marietta; Noonday Baptist Church Sanctuary, 4121 Canton Road, Marietta; Smyrna Community Center, 200 Village Green Circle, Smyrna; NorthStar Church, 3413 Blue Springs Road NW, Kennesaw; Ward Recreation Center, Lost Mountain.

Ms. Eveler...will absentee ballots be CORRECT this time, or again is it up to the voters to come and scour the new maps to make sure they are in the correct precinct and that their ballot is correct? Just wondering...
