Monday, Feb. 19, is the start of early voting for the presidential preference primary. Voters registered in DeKalb County can cast a ballot at the 1599 Clifton Road location through Friday, March 8. Part of the Emory Votes Initiative, this convenient polling place couldn’t run without volunteers.

Anyone in the Emory community — regardless of voter registration status — is encouraged to sign up for a two-hour shift via Emory OPEN. Volunteers primarily welcome voters to the building and point them to the beginning of the queue for the actual voting precinct space.

Volunteers do not answer any voting-specific questions but instead direct voters to poll workers or other DeKalb County representatives who will be present at the site. More information about what to expect as a volunteer and logistics such as where to park can be found on Emory OPEN.

“Emory is proud to host DeKalb's voting site,” says Cameron Taylor, vice president for the office of government and community affairs. “As a presidential priority and a community engagement initiative, the polling site at 1599 demonstrates Emory's commitment to serving our entire community.”

Early voting will be available through March 8, Monday-Friday 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Other dates and times for early voting include:

  • Saturday, Feb. 24, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Sunday, Feb. 25, 12 p.m.-5 p.m.
  • Saturday, March 2, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Sunday, March 3, 12 p.m.-5 p.m.

Any registered DeKalb County voter can cast an early ballot at 1599 Clifton Road; parking is free.
