ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two more voting machines have been added for advance voting in Dougherty County hoping to ease the long lines.

Voting machines planned for election day are already sealed for transportation to the polls.

Two broken machines however were repaired bring the number of voting machines for advance voting to 10. Thursday, Dougherty High School brought a bus load of 38 high schools students to the polls to cast a ballot.

"This is a monumental year for them and speaking to some of the students they were so every excited about this. One young lady said it makes me feel really adult and I asked her so after this will you vote locally and she said sure," said Dougherty High Career Counselor Brenda Blackshear.

The polls will be open again Friday for the last day of advance voting from 8:30 to 5:00 and anyone in line by 5:00 will be allowed to vote.
