By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Early voting for the July 20th primaries is underway. In Dougherty County, several dozen people showed up to cast their ballots in local and state races.

Rosalyn Thomas says she'll be out of town a lot this summer and wanted to make sure she cast her vote before she left. To her, it's more than a right, it's her civic duty.

She said, "I had a high school government teacher and I cannot, not vote, she would roll over in her grave. She was very emphatic about voting."

You can vote early at the elections office from 8:30 AM to 5 PM Monday through Friday.
