Beginning this month, the DeKalb County Clerk’s office will be mailing DeKalb voters their official documentation as a registered voter in DeKalb County. This card serves as the official identification for the voter that they are registered to vote in the County. Additionally, it provides detailed information as to which representative districts each individual resides.
While voters are not required to present this card at the polls, it is strongly encouraged that voters maintain this card in their wallet to present should the Election Judge need proof of eligibility to vote on Election Day.
The card contains 14 boxes on the front side which indicate the representative district in which you reside. The boxes are identified as, (from left to right, top to bottom), your Congressional District; Legislative, (State Senate); Representative, (State Representative); County Board; Community College District; Township; Precinct; (Starting on the bottom left), City Jurisdiction; Ward of City; Park District, (if applicable); Library District, (if applicable); Fire District; School District; and High School District.
In the outlined box, below the description of your representative boundaries, is the polling location you go to on each Election Day.
With over 185 taxing bodies, there is a lot to keep track of in the Clerk’s office. We want to make sure that you stay informed on the changes, so please pay careful attention to the new representative boundaries, or changes to your polling location.
