Albany - A day after a heated Gubernatorial debate, voters turn out in big numbers to cast their ballots early. As of Thursday night, more than 800 Dougherty Countians had taken advantage of early voting in the primary election.

The last time there was a Governor's race in Georgia, 1,000 people voted absentee. So early and absentee voter turn out this year is right on track.

In 2002, 48-percent of registered Dougherty County voters cast ballots in the gubernatorial primary.

Voter Barbara Shuler Paschal says early voting gave her a chance to go ahead and cast a ballot in the race that mattered to her the most.

"This is a Governor's race, and this will be a very big race," said Paschal. 

724 of the 827 people who've already voted in Dougherty County chose the democratic ticket.
