Atlanta will be a different city after this fall’s elections. And your vote can help decide that future.

Voters will choose a new mayor and a new City Council president. They’ll elect a City Council, where at least six of the 15 members are guaranteed to be new and only three races are uncontested. And they’ll choose a new Board of Education, where at least two of the nine members will be new and only one candidate is running unopposed.

The general election will be held Nov. 2. Any runoff elections that may be needed will be held Nov. 30. Polls will be open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. 

Early voting will run Oct. 12 through Oct. 29. Absentee ballots are already available and will remain so through Oct. 22. For details, see the election websites of DeKalb County or Fulton County. For ballot drop box locations and hours in the City of Atlanta, check our map.

The voter registration deadline is Oct. 4. To check your registration status, get registered or see your polling place, see the Georgia “My Voter” page.
