The first day of early voting in Fayette County came with very long lines, with many people wanting to get to the polls to cast their vote. From the look of the lines, many of their neighbors had the same idea.
Those voting in Fayetteville, both at the elections’ office and at the library, were in for a lengthy wait to get to the voting booth. Lines at the Fayette County Elections Office by late morning stretched down the upstairs walkway, down the stairs and wrapped around the corner of the building.
Next door at the library, the line outside went to Heritage Parkway and down the street to the vicinity of South Glynn Street.
One voter at 12:30 p.m., who said she had been in line for the library since 8 a.m., remarked that when she arrived the line of voters stretched all the way to South Glynn.
In Peachtree City, the line of voters at 1 p.m. extended out the downstairs library door, through the parking lot to Willowbend Road, up to the main City Hall entrance and a short distance into the parking lot.
There were also lines in Tyrone, with those voting at Tyrone Town Hall during the morning hours experiencing issues with the voting system, though by late morning those issues had been resolved.
