YOUR VOICE MATTERS
Although it is not a major election year, your voice and your vote matter in the upcoming municipal general and special elections this November. Local elections have some of the most direct impacts on you and your community since local leaders influence things that affect us on a daily basis. Our schools, housing, transportation, police departments, public safety, parks, infrastructure, and community services are just some of the areas determined by local government.
Since there are fewer voters in local elections, your vote is even more powerful!
This November, five of the six municipalities in Cobb County will have elections for city offices. There will also be a county-wide referendum on the Educational Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax – otherwise known as Ed-SPLOST. That means that every eligible voter in Cobb County will have something to vote on in the November 2nd election.
