Statewide, the secretary of state’s office, said there have been no major problems regarding voting.
“There is nothing systemic, nothing major or statewide that we are concerned with,” said Matt Carrothers, director of media relations for Secretary of State Brian P. Kemp. “Every election, you invariably are going to have a few things pop up. But nothing county election officials, or our office, working in conjunction with them, have not been able to rectify quickly.”
Carrothers said most of the problems have resulted frommisunderstandings. The statewide fraud hotline, for example, got a call about voters being turned away from a poll at one precinct. In actuality, Carrothers said, the voters were being shown the best door to enter.
Voting throughout the state will continue until 7 p.m. As long as you are in line by 7 p.m., you will still be allowed to vote.
