The highest single day of turnout so far this year was Friday, the last day of early voting, when 14,000 people cast votes.
Cobb Elections Director Janine Eveler said she was pleased with the outcome of the early voting period.
“I think more people will vote absentee in the future than did before, now that they have learned how easy it is,” she wrote in an email. “The high early voting turnout will hopefully make [Nov. 3] voting a little easier as well.”
In addition to the presidential race, Cobb has important local elections happening Tuesday, including for county commission chair, sheriff, district attorney and state lawmakers. Voters will also be asked to weigh in on state constitutional amendments. Check out the AJC’s voter guide here.
