Albany- The advanced voting period for the November 2nd election begins Monday and goes through Friday, October 29th.

It's a chance for voters to beat the rush without having to give a reason why they can't make it to the polls on election day.

Because of the tight presidential race, polling places will be swamped next Tuesday, and candidates are even encouraging voters to cast ballots early.

"If it's possible for you to come out and do the early voting that means that people who come out on election day will not have to wait in as long a line," says Congressman Sanford Bishop who is running for re-election.

All registered voters can take advantage of advanced voting. Secretary of State Cathy Cox predicts several hundred thousand will do so.
