Heavy voter turnout calls for more supplies

DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) -

Turnout in Dougherty County appears to be higher than expected.

County workers tell us they've had to deliver more supplies to certain precincts, but won't say which ones.

WALB has taken several calls saying that the Pine Bluff Precinct had a long wait due to the fact that they ran out of declaration forms.

A crew went to the Pine Bluff Precinct, but found people were voting.

Elections Supervisor Ginger Nickerson was not available for comment. Workers say she was out at a precinct.

The polls close at 7 p.m. but tonight they may stay open later.
