Gwinnett Voters Taking Advantage of Early Voting

Election date is Nov. 6 but some 20,000 have already cast their votes.

The presidential debates are behind us, there are campaign signs popping up every where in Peachtree Corners. And campaign robo calls are sure to follow. Election day is just 13 days away.

In Gwinnett County some 20,000 of the 462,000 registered voters have taken advantage of early voting and have cast their votes either in person or by mail according to Lynn Ledford, Gwinnett County Elections Director.

"We're seeing about 1,600 people per day," said Ledford who added that there is usually about a 45 minute wait to vote. Early voters may cast their votes in five locations in the county:

I voted today, Saturday October 27, 2012, and it was a nightmare! That is the only polite word I can use. I arrived at the Centerville satellite voting place at 8:40 AM and the line was already long. I got the opportunity to cast my vote at 2:30 in the afternoon. I waited in line for 6 hours. Why was the wait so long? After all, there were 16 voting machines inside, what could possibly have caused this wait? The wait was caused by the fact that there were only THREE computers to verify voters and give them a voting card. Only three. I asked the polling station supervisor why there were only three computers and she said that it was a matter of money. That is all the money they had for computers. Don’t blame the Board of Elections for this because it’s the Board of Commissioners who is ultimately responsible for allocating the money. In this case the BOC has made a grave error and the consequences amount to a form of voter suppression. This could be remedied by allowing more voting days, but we don’t have them thanks to the Georgia State Assembly.
