A spokesman for the Secretary of State’s office says voter turnout “seems to be steady.”
Spokesman Jared Thomas would not provide any estimates on how many people are expected to cast ballots before polls close at 7 p.m., or where turnout was heaviest. According to the agency, Georgia has 5.8 million registered voters.
Thomas said the Secretary of State’s office is fielding calls about problems, though he would not provide specifics. “Every election day we get calls,” he said. “We do have a team spread out across the state to physically investigate.”
Thomas says the agency has set up a large call center to field calls at 404-656-2871.
