ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The heat isn't slowing campaign volunteers in Leesburg. They're standing out in the sun all day long outside the government center where early voting is going on.
All four corners of the downtown square are dotted with campaign volunteers, wearing brightly colored t-shirts and waving signs. While it's not uncommon to see them outside precincts on election day, with early voting, they're now hanging out and greeting voters every day for the week leading up to election day.
Susan Smith, who's running for tax commissioner started the courthouse square campaigning. Today her son took her spot, while her competition Tricia Quinn stood across the street. John Smith said, "I hope we're doing good. This is the 3rd day, we plan on doing it the rest of the week. Hard work pays off in the end, so we'll see how it does for us."
Quinn said, "I think there are so many people that are taking advantage of the early voting now in Georgia that that 10% of people is worth getting out here to take that one last chance to see you, remember your name and vote for you."
The other two corners are occupied by supporters of the Sheriff's candidates, Harold Breeden and Reggie Rachals. They'll be there every day through next Tuesday, which is election day.
