Huge Voter Turnout Expected Saturday

Polling places are expecting a huge turnout for this Saturday’s early voting option – the only weekend day in this election cycle.

Nearly 700,000 early ballots have been cast in Georgia so far, according to the Secretary of State’s office. Overall numbers are not as high as they were in 2008, but the early voting cycle is also shorter—with just 21 days, compared to 45 days four years ago.

Charlotte Sosebee, elections supervisor in Hall County is predicting a record number of Saturday voters:

“Considering our highest election turnout, early turnout date was the 24th where there was a total of 1664 voters, and the looks of the line today, I believe we’ll process 2000 voters tomorrow in Hall county.

Advance voting places will be open from 9 to 4 on Saturday.
