Second Vote on Doraville Annexation

After admitting irregularities in the November 4 vote, DeKalb County agreed to allow voters in three neighborhoods just outside Doraville a second vote again next month on whether to join the northern DeKalb County city.  The settlement agreement resolves a lawsuit filed by Eleanor Crane and is subject to approval of DeKalb County Superior Court Judge Linda Hunter.

If approved by Judge Hunter, the new annexation vote will occur on January 27.  In the previous vote, the annexation appeared to have succeeded at first, but then failed by 34 votes out of 1,138 cast.
