Albany - - In Dougherty County, voters headed to the polls at a pretty steady rate today.

From 7 am to 7 pm, people headed to their respective precincts to cast their votes for the candidates they felt were best qualified.

Elections Superintendent Carolyn Hatcher says even though voter turnout was steady in Dougherty County, it could always be better.  

"It was pretty good. It's never good unless it's 100 % and we're probably going to beat the state average I hope," she says.

A little over 33 % of registered voters took to the polls in Dougherty County for today's primary election. A little over 20 % of voters turned out in the state of Georgia.
