ALBANY, GA (WALB) - After 30 years on the job, Dougherty County's first female elections supervisor is retiring.

Carolyn Hatcher said the advertisement for her job was made public Tuesday. Hatcher says it's just time for a change. Over the last 30, years she's seen a lot of changes, especially in the way we vote.

"We changed from the punch cards to the optical scan ballots and that was a big change and we had to do a lot of educating and then when we changed to the voting machines in 1996 and that was big, that was real big and I think that stands out the most, the changes," said Carolyn Hatcher, Dougherty County Elections Supervisor.

Hatcher's retirement is effective March third. Although she's retiring, don't be surprised if you see her volunteering on election day.
