THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –Thomas County election officials expected fewer people than usual to show up at voting precincts Tuesday.

It's not because people aren't interested but because early voter turnout reached an all-time high.

Before Tuesday election, more than 5-thousand electronic ballots and more than 5-hundred absentee paper ballots were cast in Thomas County.

Voters tell us it's important for them to express their opinions at the ballot box.

"Just don't say nothing (if you don't vote) because you had a chance," says voter Deborah Perry. "Everyone who has an opportunity to vote needs to come out and make that vote."

Thomas County officials expect activity will pick up as people get off work.

They estimate more than half the county's registered voters will turn out.
