MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - Early voting for the General Election Run off started a week ago in Moultrie, and already more than a thousand voters have cast ballots.

Monday Senator Saxby Chambliss was one of them. The Senator and his wife were back in their hometown Monday morning to vote.

Election workers say the voter turn out in Moultrie has been extremely high for a run-off. They've seen more early voters for this race than they did in the general Election.

"People in Moultrie just came out on November the 4th in droves and we won overwhelmingly here and now we have one of the largest turnouts percentage wide in the state last week and it's very busy this morning. I'm very humble that my hometown folks are coming out to support us in a very very big big way," says Sen. Saxby Chambliss, (R) Georgia.

Senator Saxby Chambliss beat his Democratic opponent jim Martin by 110,000 votes in the November 4th election. Feedback
