Albany -- South Georgians rushed to the polls to take one last advantage of early voting. The lines were long at the Albany Civic Center Friday.
Since early voting began on Monday, nearly 2,000 voters have cast their ballots there. In just three hours, poll workers says about 200 voters cast their ballots.
One voter says the voting process went smoothly. "The assistance here was great," said Voter Harold Williams. "The people on staff here took us right in, put us in place, and we worked out fine."
Poll workers say they experienced no major problems with early voting, only that some voters were unclear on some of the amendments.
