THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

THOMAS COUNTY, GA (WALB) – People in Thomas County are taking advantage of early voting.

Voters like it because they can avoid lines and come in on their own time.

Elections workers say they've seen an increase in early voters the past few years.

"By having the early voting, it takes a lot of pressure off the polls because they only have that one day," explains Eunice Cook, deputy registrar. "It helps them out so they don't have those long lines. And of course, it helps the voters also."

The early voting will last until Friday, July 16th.

People who are not registered to vote but want to do so have until June 21 to be eligible for the July 20th primary.
