Small morning crowds for Georgia Primary Runoff

By Christian Jennings - bio | email

ALBANY,  GA (WALB) – Hopefully some of you have already made your way to the polls to vote in the primary runoff elections.

So far turnout has been fairly low. We were at the Sherwood Acres precinct this morning in Dougherty county where only 18 people had voted during the first hour.

Election officials there said during the Primary election three weeks ago more than 50 people had voted by 8 A.M. Voters we talked to said NOT voting is NOT an option for them.

"I was the only one in there when I went in. Usually I get here about seven and there is usually a good crowd then but I just walked right in this morning," said Floyd Wilson, a Dougherty County Voter.

"Well if you don't vote you don't have a right to complain or make statements that does away with that right," said Bill Harman, another voter.

Remember if you voted in the July 20th primary, you MUST cast the same party's ballot for the runoff TODAY. If you didn't vote three weeks ago, you can vote today and you can choose either party.

All precincts will be open until 7 P.M. The Republican ballot includes some big races...Governor, Attorney General, Insurance Commissioner, and various local races. The only statewide runoff on the Democratic side is for Secretary of State.
