VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - People lined up to beat Monday's deadline, and more registrations are expected to arrive in the mail and from UPS. Despite the extra work, election workers are happy to see this much interest in the upcoming election. 

 "It's wonderful everybody is so excited for both candidates. Its just been unreal. People that have never registered before, that are elderly up to young people are coming in to register to vote. Everybody wants to make sure their vote counts," said Asst. Elections Supervisor Susan Malham.

 For those already registered, elections officials are encouraging them to vote early. More than 4,000 people have taken advantage of early voting, and 2,000 more are expected to cast ballots this week.
