Voters in DeKalb county have until 7 p.m. to cast their ballots for today’s election.
When asked why she came out to vote, Kathy Edwards did not hesitate with her answer.
“My right to vote. That’s it. I’m here to practice my right,” she said.
Edwards is especially concerned about Medicaid expansion. For that reason, she said, she’s voting for Democratic gubenatorial nominee Stacey Abrams.
“To be honest, I’m really pushing for Medicaid expansion here in Georgia because I’ve seen what it does to other states that don’t have it,” said Edwards.
Without the expansion of Medicaid, she said, elderly people in Georgia will continue to suffer.
Following today’s election, Georgia voters will vote again during the July 24 runoffs and Nov. 6 general election.
