Albany-- Day two of Florida's early elections and already problems there are reminding people of the 2000 election debacle.

But, election workers in Georgia are confident our advanced voting will go smoothly.

There have been no problems with the machines during absentee voting in Albany. During our last election, the primary run-off in August, only a few minor issues popped up.

Elections Supervisior Carolyn Hatcher says, "Those machines are constantly recharging its batteries, at times we had a few that stopped charging, all we had to do was put the plug in better, sometimes they get shaken lose, but otherwise no major problems at all whatsoever."

Election officials in South Georgia are getting frequent updates from the Secretary of State's office as November 2nd nears.

Carolyn Hatcher warns that people can probably expect long lines not only on election day but also during advanced voting, which starts Monday.
