Albany --  If you voted today, you probably saw campaign volunteers standing on the corners waving signs near the election precincts.   Many candidates have volunteers out from 7:00AM to 7:00PM trying to get voters attention as they head to the polls.

Mayoral Candidate Bo Dorough's sister, Kathy Thompson, came from her home in Houston County. She says this last minute campaigning could be the difference in who wins.  "I hope it does. I hope we are worthwhile and are doing our job."  

Adams' volunteer Betty Kemp said "We enjoy, we have a lot of fun. Because we see them coming in and out. We don't know who they vote for, but we know that they are coming. That's a good sign."

Some candidates pay these campaigners, but most are volunteers.
