Valdosta - Anyone wishing to vote early in Lowndes County can now get a free ride.

 The Republican and Democratic Parties in Valdosta are sponsoring free rides to the Lowndes County Elections office this week and the primary election next Tuesday.

They say they've been busy in their first day of voting and expect nearly 2000 people by the end of the week.

And their new location at 2808 North Oak Street can handle the flow.

"149 parking spaces, unlimited room for people waiting, 39 machines, the commissioners bought all new machines for advanced voting to get the flow through a little big quicker with the large crowds expected," says Deb Cox, Elections Coordinator.

The rides will be offered from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
