Early voting starts today

Voters can cast their ballots starting today leading up to the Nov. 2 general election in each Georgia county.

More than half a million Georgia voters cast early ballots in 2008.

“We want to put as much information in the hands of the voter as we can, in an easy-to-use format,” Secretary of State Brian Kemp said in a press release regarding early voting. "The goal is for every voter in the State of Georgia to have the information he or she needs to be able to make the voting process work for them."

Voters will have the opportunity to elect a new governor as well as one of two U.S. Senate positions in state-wide races.
