Polls open to light turnout



The turnout at Richmond County polling locations has been light this morning.

Lynn Bailey, executive director of Board of Elections, said the light turnout has not been surprising.

Only about 25 percent of Richmond County’s 101,000 registered voters were anticipated to show up at the polls.

“We’ve had people out here but it’s not overwhelming numbers,” Bailey said.

Richmond County’s 50 polling locations opened this morning on time without any problems and will remain open until 7 p.m.

The busiest times are anticipated between 7-9 a.m. and 5-7 p.m.

Anyone with questions should visit the Board of Elections website or call (706) 821-2340.
