Catoosa County With High Early Voting Turnout
RINGGOLD, Ga. (WDEF)- In North Georgia, turnout has been very high for a runoff election. In Catoosa County, 11 thousand four hundred and 60 votes have been cast in early voting. Officials say that lines have been out the door and if there had been a normal three week voting period instead of just a single week of early voting, a record could have been set.
John Pless, the Public Information Officer for Catoosa County, expects that, “Even though we had robust turnout during the one week of early voting, Catoosa County is traditionally an Election Day turnout county. A lot of people like the traditional Election Day, the 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., so we fully expect very solid turnout at all 11 of our precincts tomorrow. Weather? Is that going to be a factor. Is it going to be cold and rainy again? We just don’t know, we’ll have to wait and see. But the expectation is that tomorrow is going to be a very busy day here in Georgia and in Catoosa County.”
Polls will be open tomorrow from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Officials remind voters that they must report to their precinct and have I-D present to vote. They also advise having an umbrella in case you have to wait outside. For more information on voting procedures, visit your county’s election website or https://mvp.sos.ga.gov/s/.
