ATLANTA — Early voting for the November elections is underway in Georgia, and voters in some counties report waiting more than hour to cast a ballot.
Monday marks the first day you can vote in-person before Election Day on Nov. 8.
At one of two early voting sites in Cobb County, voters reported waits of 60 to 90 minutes. Local media reported that people waited several hours in Gwinnett County.
Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp recommends that people visit his office’s website to check registration status, view sample ballots and find the correct locations to vote early.
Counties began sending out mail-in absentee ballots in September. People who want to vote by mail must request it by Nov. 4. Kemp recommends requesting those ballots well before the deadline.
