That turnout rate is more than double that of 2014. In the last midterm election, 47,872 people cast early ballots in person in Gwinnett. That amounted to 12.08 percent of the 396,271 registered voters in the county at that time.
Gwinnett and other metro Atlanta counties have seen consistently high voter turnout during the early voting period. On the last day of early voting, more than 17,000 people cast ballots at eight polling places in Gwinnett, waiting for up to two hours to do so. On the first day of early voting, wait times in Cobb County were as long as three hours.
Voters across Georgia have one last chance to cast their ballot: Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6.
