3,700 Cobb residents show up for first day of early voting

More than 3,700 people cast their ballots on Cobb County's first day of in-person early voting.

The county election's office released the numbers to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution but noted that they are unofficial until they've been audited today. The report did not include the content of the votes.

The yet-to-be-vetted statistics showed that 2,137 people voted at the Cobb County Civic Center and 1,569 voted at the Cobb County Elections Main Office.
