Early Voting Ends on Friday, The Number of Early Voters Has Risen
Politics

Atlanta, GA--  Early voting ends Friday for the Nov. 2 general election. Registered Hall County voters can visit the Elections Office at 2285 Browns Bridge Road, Gainesville, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. through Friday.

More voters are taking advantage of this last week of early voting. “We are averaging 500 voters per day, but yesterday we voted 647,” Interim Director of Elections Charlotte Sosebee said Tuesday.

Early voting began Sept. 16. As of Tuesday, Sosebee said Hall County has had 7,189 voters cast early votes. The Elections Office has mailed 2,590 absentee ballots, and 1,051 have been returned. 

“In the 2006 Gubernatorial Election, we had an overall 80 percent voter turnout. In 2008, we had 76 percent; however most voters cast an early ballot rather than going to the polls. My prediction this year is 77 percent voter turnout,” Sosebee said. 

The polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day, Nov. 2. Sample ballots are available online at elections.hallcounty.org. Voters can find their registration status, polling locations, and voting requirements at http://www.sos.ga.gov/elections/.
