Here’s a handy voting guide

Quite a few residents have expressed some confusion about who they can vote for and who’s running against whom, so here’s the scoop:

Doraville has 3 neighborhood districts, each represented by two councilmembers. One​ ​seat​ ​is​ ​open​ ​for​ ​each  district in this election,​ ​but​ ​​all​ ​Doraville​ ​voters​ ​can​ ​vote for​ ​all​ ​three​ ​seats​. That​ ​means​ ​that​ ​not​ ​everyone​ ​who​ ​asks for​ ​your​ ​vote​ ​is​ ​running​ ​against​ ​each other,​ ​and​ ​in​ ​fact​ ​it’s​ ​very​ ​important for the council members to be able to work well together.

So,​ ​if​ ​you​ ​like​ ​what​ ​the​ ​candidate​ ​in​ ​one  district​ ​has​ ​to​ ​say,​ ​it’s​ ​a​ ​good​ ​idea​ ​to​ ​ask the​ ​candidates​ ​in​ ​the​ ​other​ ​two​ ​districts  whether​ ​they​ ​support​ ​these​ ​goals​, and also how they will handle inevitable disagreements with other council members.  Here’s​ ​the​ ​complete​ ​list​ ​of candidates — those​ ​within​ ​the​ ​same  district​ ​are​ ​opposing​ ​each​ ​other,​ ​while those​ ​in​ ​different​ ​districts​ ​have​ ​the opportunity​ ​to​ ​work​ ​together​ ​on​ ​the  council.​  Please take the time to get to know us – many of our elections are decided by fewer than a dozen votes, so your vote really counts!
