THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Time is up to register to vote in the general election this November. Across Georgia today people crowded into elections offices to register before the deadline.

In Thomasville the line was out the door. Around 3:00pm today the wait was about an hour. People were also getting in and voting early.

Most people said it was worth it, they didn't mind the wait.

 "If I want to say anything about any of them, Democrat, Republican, or Independent, I have to be able to say that I voted," says voter William Bradshaw.

"This is probably the biggest election we've had since I've been here. Everybody is turning out for it," says Thomas County Registrar Eunice Cook.

Thomas County election workers predicted they registered about one thousand people today alone. Feedback
