Fulton County voters turnout in droves on final day of early voting

The Secretary of State’s Office said that it is expecting 2.4 million Georgians to have voted by the end of the day Friday, shattering voting records once again in the state.

Channel 2′s Audrey Washington went to an early voting polling location in South Fulton County, where she found a steady stream of people heading in to vote.

People told Washington that they wanted to make sure their votes were cast and counted early.

“It was smooth and easy,” voter Naomi Salaman said. “It was good to get it in and out and get it off of my chest.”

Salaman was one of hundreds of thousands of Georgians to vote early.

Friday, Washington spoke with the head of the Fulton County Department of Registration and Elections, Nadine Williams.


Williams said, as of Friday, more than 270,000 people in Fulton County have voted.

“Even if that line is down the block, you are permitted to vote — but you have to be in that line by seven o’clock,” Williams said.

Fulton County election officials are reminding people who plan to vote on Election Day, Nov. 8, to make sure they have their correct polling place.

“Do your research. You can go online to see your polling site and see a sample ballot,” Williams said.

Fulton County election officials said there will be 249 polling places open on Election Day in Fulton County.
