ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

With 11,000 registered voters in Albany area, approximately 100 of them took advantage of early voting. That means people could see long lines at the polls Tuesday.

Voters will get a second chance to cast ballots for the next Albany City Commissioner for Ward II and III. Incumbents Ivey Hines and Christopher Pike face some newcomers BJ Fletcher, Cheryl Calhoun, Demetrius Love, and Bobby Ray Coleman.

In Americus and Sylvester, voters will elect their next Mayor while those in Lowndes County will decide on a sales tax option aimed at relocating the Valdosta wastewater treatment plant.

Voters can cast ballots from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Those going to vote will need a state-issued ID. Voting officials remind those going to the ballots that an expired ID is acceptable.

Officials also note that any changes to a voter's registration must be made 30 days prior to November 5th.
