Voters in the newly minted city of Mableton will choose their elected officials this spring.

What's happening: A special election is set for Tuesday, March 21 to decide the first-ever mayor and city council members.

  • Qualifying for candidates who want to run for office will be held Jan. 18-20 at Cobb County Elections and Registration in Marietta.

Catch up quick: 53% of voters on Nov. 8 approved the question to incorporate the south Cobb city, which is located east of Austell and Powder Springs, and abuts the Chattahoochee River to the southeast.

  • Despite a majority of residents voting in favor of a new city, some want to de-annex their neighborhoods from Mableton.

Residents have until Feb. 21 to register to vote.

  • Early voting starts on Feb. 27, and a schedule will be posted on the Cobb elections website.
  • You can already start requesting mail-in ballots online.
