ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

28 precincts were opened for voters in Dougherty County on Super Tuesday.

Poll officials at Westover High School said they had a pretty steady flow of voters throughout the day. 

Only two thousand people voted during early voting in Dougherty County.

Starting at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Georgia voters had their last chance to have their say in who they'd like to see on November's presidential ballot. 

For the presidential preference primary, all voters selected a party, Republican or Democrat, and then received a ballot associated with the party they chose. 

Electronic voting machines were set up in 28 precincts within the county and poll manager Walter Davis said that they had little to no issues with the machines all day. 

"They came in like a herd of cows this morning, and it's been a steady flow. A machine lost power, but we booted it back up. But other than that, the line has run smoothly," said Davis.

    Ahead of heavy rain showers and winds projected for our area, the Georgia State Patrol said there's not as many travelers on the roads during this holiday weekend.  "So far I think this attributed to the weather and gas prices being so high, it seems that in our area of the state, traffic has been down some," said Trooper Christopher Jewell, GSP Post 40.
