COLUMBUS, Ga. — Muscogee County wrapped up its first week of early voting with strong turnout.

With the first Sunday of early voting in the books, the first full week of early voting has come to a close. More than 9,500 voters have cast early ballots. Voters News 3 spoke to Sunday afternoon say the Sunday hours make early voting even more convenient for their schedules.

“I just found out today, really, and I was like, ‘Uh oh! I got to go vote because I don’t want to get in that crowd in November, so I’m glad this, I’m very honored, this is done,” voter Doretha Williams said.

“I wanted to go ahead and just get it over with,” voter Mark Curry said. “You know, every vote counts. Plus, I wanted to beat the crowd.”

Sen. Josh McKoon (R-GA) advises that some ballot measures and rules may be vague. He suggests poll workers could be voters’ best friends at the ballot box.

“Don’t be afraid to ask for help while you’re there to make sure you can vote exactly the way you want,” Sen. McKoon said.

There are still two full weeks left of early voting. Voters can cast their ballots between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Citizens Service Center on Macon Road. Early voting will also run next Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

After that, the final chance to vote will be on election day, November 8.
