ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The May primaries are just around the corner and lots of people were out Saturday to cast their ballots early.  

Downtown dozens of people decided to come out and cast their ballots. This is the only Saturday that voters will be able to cast early ballots. Early voting will wrap up next week. Some voters say it's convenient for them to vote on Saturday.  

"A lot of people have jobs that make it inconvenient for them to vote during the week. So, I think it's terrific that this opportunity is made available to them," said Philip McArdle.  

Early voting will end Friday May 16th. The primary election will be the following Tuesday on May 20th.
