Steady Turnout Reported for Georgia Runoff Election

Posted: Updated:

Reported by Mark Bruce

NORTH GEORGIA (WRCB)  Excitement from November's election is carrying over to Georgia's December runoff.  Election workers across North Georgia say turnout is heavier than they expected.

The last runoff election garnered an 11% turnout.  Early voting for this runoff was already at 10% and ballot casters continued to stream to the polls Tuesday.
 
"We had a lot of people early vote and we had a lot of absentee ballots, so we expected a slower election day," said Catoosa Election Administrator John Campbell.  "But it's been busier than we anticipated."

Administrators say there were few if any problems.  Many officials believe the heated senate race spurred the high voter turnout.
