Early voting goes well in Lee County

January 28, 2008

Leesburg -- Hundreds of voters throughout the state have already placed their votes for the Georgia Primary.

Early voting started Monday.

It's done a week in advance to help accommodate those with unusual work schedules that won't be able to place their ballots on Super Tuesday.

Workers at Lee County's early voting booths say the process has been pretty smooth so far.

"We've had a steady stream of voters today, not a huge turnout. But we realize that each day it will get bigger with the number of people that will take advantage of advanced voting. No problems, everyone has been real eager to show us their voter ID. 99 percent of the people who came to vote whipped out their drivers license with no problem," said Elections Supervisor, Veronica Johnson.

Those of you who wish to place an absentee ballot may also do so this week.

You can call your county elections office to have one mailed to your home.
