DeKalb urges voters to return to precinct

DeKalb County elections officials are urging voters who could not find parking at Mount Carmel Christian Church in Stone Mountain to return to cast ballots before the polls close at 7 p.m.

The county’s Board of Registration and Elections said voters experienced some parking inconveniences at the Smokerise precinct at the church, 6015 Old Stone Mountain Road, because of another unrelated event.

“The parking issues have been corrected,” the county said in a statement.

Some voters in Cherokee County also encountered parking inconveniences at Woodstock First Baptist Church on Highway 92 after another event at the church precinct coincided with the election.

Cherokee elections chief Janet Munda, however, said there “was plenty of parking” at the church Tuesday afternoon, even if some of the spaces were not close to the building. “People may have to walk a bit,” Munda said.

Well, when the T-SPLOST fails at the ballot box, parking will be blamed. People tried and tried but simply could not find parking near their polling place. Riiiight!

People are so stupid. A woman in Cherokee county was upset because she wanted to vote for a Democrat for Sheriff. THERE ISN’T A DEMOCRAT RUNNING FOR SHERIFF IN CHEROKEE COUNTY!!!

If the state government can’t even make sure there is parking for their sales tax increase vote, how can they be expected to properly solve any other traffic problems ?

Isn’t the church in Cherokee the one that Chip Rogers belongs to?

Goodness, Republicans are dumb. I’ll type slowly so Republican readers can understand me. The parking lot is at a church. C-H-U-R-C-H. Churches in America are not run by the state, because we have the Democratic party.

You’re right…..The state is run by churches.
