Redistricting: Because of redistricting, some voters may find themselves in new congressional and state House and Senate districts. They may even end up going to a new polling place. To figure out what districts you now live in, go to the "My Voter Page" part of the Georgia Secretary of State webpage. Also, the DeKalb Voter Registration and Elections office will be sending all registered voters new precinct cards in the next two weeks.
