ALBANY, GA (WALB) - As election day draws closer, many states are seeing a record number of people heading to the polls for early voting.

One former United States president says those voters could change the political face of Georgia.

Some big name Georgia Democrats say the state, which usually votes Republican in presidential races,  could go for Barack Obama.

Carter thinks Obama could turn Georgia blue.

"I think so it hadn't been blue since I turned it blue, back in the early days in 1976. I carried Georgia getting 85% of the votes in Georgia, so that's a pretty good record. It's about time it went Democrat and I think it will," said President Jimmy Carter.

In 1992, Bill Clinton won the state of Georgia by a small margin.
