ALBANY, GA (WALB) - In Dougherty County, about half as many people turned out to vote compared to early voting three weeks ago.

Elections officials were pleased with the turnout but hope more people will show up to the polls to vote on Tuesday.

In Dougherty County, the Democratic U. S. Senate race is the only thing on the ballot, so you can only vote if you selected a Democratic ballot or didn't vote at all July 15th.

"Tuesday, seven to seven and it's very important.  It's a U.S. Senate race and it's not over until we get through," said Elections Supervisor Carolyn Hatcher. 

There are about 20 runoffs going on across the viewing area.
