CONYERS — Voters in the Fieldstone Precinct in Rockdale County will vote in another location on Aug. 11 due to an outbreak of COVID-19 at Chief Cornerstone Community Church, which serves as the voting location for the Fieldstone Precinct.
A judicial order signed Aug. 3 by Chief Superior Court Judge David Irwin moves the voting location for Fieldstone to the Rockdale County Government Annex, 1400 Parker Road, Conyers, and extends the voting hours by 30 minutes. Voting hours on Aug. 11 will be 7 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. The order states that all voters of the Fieldstone Precinct in line by 7:30 p.m. will be permitted to vote.
With 6,137 active voters, the Fieldstone Precinct is the largest in Rockdale County.
There are two runoffs (one Democrat, one non-partisan) in Rockdale in the Aug. 11 elections.
♦ Clerk of Superior Court
Sharif Akeem Fulcher
There is no Republican candidate, so the winner will fill the seat vacated by James Cabe, who decided not to run for election after being sworn into office in March following the retirement of long-term clerk Ruth Wilson.
♦ Board of Education, Post 5
The winner will fill the seat vacated by the retiring Tony Dowdy.
In Rockdale County, early in-person voting will take place at 1400 Parker Road in Conyers. Remaining hours for early voting are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Aug. 5-7.
