ALBANY, GA (WALB) - With less than three weeks until election day, election administrators are working overtime, even on weekends to get ready for the expected record turnout.

In Dougherty County, more than 6,000 people have already voted in person or by mail so far.

Workers are still inputting information and get ready for the slew of voters on November 4th.

The election office has also ordered three times as much supplies as they normally do.

"It's a presidential year, and we always have a big turnout on a presidential year. It's a non incumbent, so that brings out more people, everyone is just really excited about the candidates," Carolyn Hatcher, Dougherty County Elections Supervisor.

There are 28 polling places in Dougherty County, and the election office is urging registered voters to take advantage of Georgia's Early and Advanced voting.

Advance voting starts Monday October 21st.

Dougherty County voters can vote at the old Bob's Candy Building at 125 Pine Avenue.

Advance and Early voting ends on October 31st.
