ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Statewide, early voter turnout has been low for the December second runoff, but some south Georgia election offices have been busy.

About two percent of Georgia's registered voters have cast ballots so far. In Lee County Friday, there was a line to vote just before noon.

In four days, Dougherty County has had more than 1,500 voters come into the office. Election officials credit the Senate candidates and their parties for the turnout.

"Usually runoffs tend to have a smaller turnout, but I think both of the candidates in the Senate runoff race have really done a big push to get their voters to come back out and vote one last time this election year," said Veronica Johnson, Lee County Elections Supervisor.

Early voting will resume next week and conclude Wednesday. Don't forget, you need an official government issued photo I. D. to cast a ballot.
