ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Final numbers are in for Dougherty County voter turnout. More than 38,000 voters cast ballots, that's a 70 percent voter turnout

More than a thousand voters came out to Mount Zion Church in East Albany and some voters even waited 45 minutes in line to cast their ballot.

Poll workers at Mount Zion say their busiest time was in the morning and then picked up again in the evening after people got off of work.

One poll worker described the morning rush as extremely busy.

"This morning, we had at least about three lines. It was pretty hectic. They lined almost out to the door, but everybody was patient and we got everybody out in a timely fashion," said Alysia Allen, Poll Worker.

Poll workers say the lines went by steadily thanks to no malfunctions by any of the voting machines and to cooperative voters.
