Last day of early voting kicks off

Early voting ends today

ALBANY, Ga. (WALB) - Voters are coming out to the Albany Civic Center in numbers for the last day of early voting for the US Senate runoffs.

The Dougherty County Elections Office says Thursday will also be the last day they will mail absentee ballots.

The office will be closed on Friday, New Year’s Day.

At the polls, one voter said it was a monumental moment.

“I think it is monumental. This is one of the more important elections to me, even more so important than the general election. This is where we see the most change,” said Tehkeyah Williams.

Williams also feels it’s important to vote so you can exercise your right as an American citizen.

The majority of voters WALB spoke with on Thursday say they feel they had enough time to vote since early voting began on Dec. 14.

Early voting ends Thursday at 5 p.m. if your county voting precinct is closed on New Year’s Day.
