Albany -- Less than nine percent of Dougherty County voters cast ballots in Tuesday's run off election, but that was still higher than the state prediction.

4038 people voted in Dougherty County in the Georgia Court of Appeals run off. That is 8.9 percent of the more than 45 thousand registered voters.

Elections Supervisor Carolyn Hatcher said "A runoff, that is in Thanksgiving week, and just not a real good time for people to turn out and vote. But I was pleased, I thought we did fine."

 3434 went to the polls Tuesday, while the rest voted early or absentee.
