Video Shows Massive Line of Georgia Voters on Last Day of Early Voting in Third-Largest County


A new video shows a line filled with hundreds of #Georgia voters, waiting to cast their ballots for the #Senate runoff in #Cobb #County, the state’s third largest county.

The video, which was posted to #Twitter by #Priscilla #Thompson of NBC #News, shows voters waiting on line at 7:30 a.m. local time, just a half-hour after early voting locations opened for the day.

“LIVE LOOK at the line of people waiting to vote at 730am on NYE — the last day of early voting in #Cobb #County, #Georgia. #As a reminder, the states runoff elections will ultimately determine the balance of power in #Washington DC,” #Thompson wrote in the caption to her tweet.

The early voting period in #Cobb #County began on #December 14, and ends at 3 p.m. local time today.

#Twitter user #Dave R #Watson shared a photo at around 7 a.m. local time on #Thursday, showing a similar line outside another early voting location in #Cobb #County, with a caption that read, “#Last day of early voting in #Cobb #County. #Line already snaking around polling location as polls open.”

“The line to early vote in #DeKalb #County, GA (early voting started weeks ago),” #Twitter user #Cameron wrote on #Tuesday, including a photo of the line outside the early voting location.

The early voting period also ends on #Thursday in #DeKalb #County, which is the fourth largest county in the state.

#Across #Georgia, several other counties had their final day of early voting on #Wednesday, where similar lines of voters were seen.

#In #Fulton #County, the state’s largest, early voting ended on #Wednesday but voters were seen waiting in lines earlier in the week.

#As the photos and videos show lines of early voters, the #Georgia #Secretary of #State’s office confirmed to #Newsweek that as of #Thursday, there have been at least 2,812,532 early votes cast, which includes 895,859 mail-in ballots and 1,916,673 in-person votes.

The lines of voters come less than a week before the state’s #Senate runoff. The #January 5 runoff, which will determine which political party has the #Senate majority, includes two races.
