SECONDARY PHOTO - November 4, 2016 Cobb County: Simon Mbock became a U.S. citizen 6-years ago after moving to the U.S. from France. He stood in line for an hour with his son, Oliver -16-months old on Friday, Nov. 4, 2016 on the last day of Advance voting at the Windy Hill Community Center at 1885 Roswell Street SE in Smyrna. Cobb County Sheriff deputies at the scene said at its peak, the line was 200 yards long with nearly a 3-hour wait. Nearly 2.2 million voters have already cast their ballots in Georgia, nearly 300,000 more than had voted during the entire 2012 early voting period. Whatâs more, Secretary of State Brian Kemp said Friday morning that voters have also shattered the 2008 early voting record of 2.1 million. JOHN SPINK /JSPINK@AJC.COM
