Voter Info


The City of Mableton was approved by the voters in a referendum on the General Election Ballot on November 8, 2023.

MIC’s Position on Cityhood – The Mableton Improvement Coalition has maintained a neutral stance on the City of Mableton incorporation question since inception of the movement. View our official statement here.

First City Election – The referendum was the result of the General Assembly’s passage of House Bill (HB-839), which set the boundaries of the City, established city council districts, and laid out the powers of the Mayor and Council. The law also established March 21, 2023, as the date for a special election for the first Mayor and Council Members.

ATTENTION MABLETON VOTERS – On Monday, February 6, 2023, the State of Georgia transitioned to a new voter registration system.  Due to the move, voters within the new City of Mableton will NOT be able to immediately view their state and local districts on the Secretary of State’s My Voter Page.  If you need immediate information regarding your district, contact the Cobb County Election office at 770-528-2581 or email:  For more info, click here.

City Services – Proponents of the City of Mableton and the feasibility study prepared in accordance with state law put forth four services that the new City would offer: waste management; code enforcement; planning, zoning, and economic development; and parks and recreation. The legislation establishing the city does not name these services, but instead includes the list of all services that all cities are authorized to provide.

Once elected, the Mayor and City Council will determine which services to deliver to its citizens – and whether to deliver the services directly or through a contract with the County, another local government, or a vendor.  Throughout the transition period, the County will continue to provide services and functions except for those that the Mayor and Council are allowed to discharge according to HB 839 or as agreed upon between the County and City.  The level of service provided by the County after the transition period will depend upon the mutual agreement of the Board of Commissioners, Mayor, and City Council.

Transition Period – The Governor may appoint five persons to serve as “interim representatives” or “transition team” for the city. However, that group cannot enter into binding agreements or expend public funds.  The members of this group will be ineligible to qualify for election to the new city council. State law allows for a transition period up to 24 months for the transition of government functions from the county to the new municipal corporation.

City residents remain a part of Cobb County and will continue to be represented on the Cobb County Commission by District 4 Representative Monique Sheffield. Cobb County Government officials have publicly stated that they are eager to assist new city appointees and officials to ensure smooth transition to the new city government.
