ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Election day is more than two weeks away, but a lot of people are taking advantage of early voting.

There was a line outside the elections office in downtown Albany today.

More than 2,000 people have cast ballots early in Dougherty County.

The elections supervisor doesn't expect it to slow down anytime soon.

"I expect it to increase if anything, a lot of people have made up their mind, the commercials and  the advertisements some people may have decided that they don't want to end up in the line on election day," said Ginger Nickerson, Supervisor of Elections.

Next week, they'll open a second location at the old Bobs Candies building on Pine Avenue. The 29th will be the last day of early voting.
