Thomasville - This year Georgia is allowing advanced voting before the elections, and any registered voter can participate. The voting booths are quiet now, but Lisa Greene hopes they won't be for long.

"Well, the advance voting, I think, will increase voter turnout to people who normally don't have time to go to the polls on election day," says Greene, the Chief Deputy Registrar in Thomas County.

She thinks advance voting is a great idea, and allows everyone plenty of time to cast their vote. Greene says, "It's never been easier or more convenient before and we hope that this encourages them to come out and cast their ballot."

And Greene says the more people who vote now, the quicker voting will be on election day. "As the word gets around, as it spreads this week," she says, "We'll probably have more and more people come in and the word will spread pretty fast."

And voting will be fast as well. You can vote in advance now through Friday at the Voter Registrar's office on Jefferson Street in Thomasville. Regular municipal elections will be held next Tuesday, November 4th.
