East Cobb General Election Guide
Everything you need to know to prepare to vote on Tuesday.
The early voting is over, absentee ballots should be turned in and the final polls have been taken.
All that's left to determine the next president of the United States and a handful of state and local offices is Tuesday's general election.
In Cobb, the polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at all precincts. In Georgia, it's also state law to provide photographic identity in order to vote.
According to Cobb Elections, 20 percent of the county's nearly 400,000 registered voters have already cast ballots.
In addition to the presidential race involving Democratic incumbent Barack Obama, Republican challenger Mitt Romney and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, East Cobb voters also will be voting in the 6th District Congressional race. Republican incumbent Tom Price of Roswell faces East Cobb Democrat Jeff Kazanow.
Two Georgia Public Service Commission seats are on the ballot, as is the controversial Charter School Amendment to the state Constitution.
All of the local races involving East Cobb candidates were determined in the primaries, or incumbents are running unopposed. Those names are included on the ballot, except winners of judicial races, which were non-partisan.
Republican Cobb Commission chairman Tim Lee was re-elected after winning a runoff against Bill Byrne. There is no Democratic candidate, although East Cobb resident Craig Harfoot is waging a write-in campaign.
Cobb Board of Education member David Banks and state House members Don Parsons and Matt Dollar also won new terms representing the East Cobb area after defeating Republican challengers in the primary. No Democrats qualified to run for those positions.
District 2 commissioner Bob Ott, a Republican, was unopposed, as were State Sen. Judson Hill and State Rep. Sharon Cooper, also Republicans.
