ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Voters have been lined up every morning this week waiting for the early voting polls to open at the Riverfront Resource Center in Albany.

About 13 percent of Dougherty County's registered voters cast a ballot during advanced and early voting. Election workers today said they haven't had any problems with the voting machines although some voters have been confused by the Flint River Soil and Water Conservation position that no one is running for, prompting the machine to ask for a write in candidate. Swamped with newly registered voters some have had to cast provisional ballots.

"We've had to do several provisional ballots because they're not on the books and the office has a lot to put on the computer and so they do a provisional ballot and within 48 hours the office does a search and finds their registration and then the vote counts," said Noel Buttner, Early Voting Manager.

Some voters have turn up without picture ID's and were sent to the election office to have them made so they could then vote. The U.S. Attorney's office announced today they've appointed a representative to handle complaints of election fraud and voting rights abuses along with the Justice Department.

The FBI will also have special agents available in each field office to deal with allegations of election fraud.
