Voter turnout average in Pooler

By Lynda Figueredo - bioemail

POOLER, GA (WTOC) - Voter turnout was average Tuesday morning at the Pooler City Hall location according to the poll manager.

Close 90 people came out to cast their vote by noon.

The polls opened at 7 a.m. and will close at 7 p.m.

Some of the top races voters came out for is the heated Governors race and the fight for the Democratic or Republic nomination for the position of Attorney General or Insurance Commissioner.

"These are tough times for a lot of people, and there are a lot of people that want to have their voice heard," said Brian Christopher. "I am looking forward to seeing a diverse group of people coming out today, like myself just coming out and standing up for people they think represent their values."

Of course, there are a number of seats up for grabs including School Superintendent, Secretary of State and local election board member seats.

"I want the right candidate to be in office," said Margate Motes.

Once you arrive at the polls, you will be required to show a photo ID. Your vote will help determine which candidates will be on the ballot come November.

It's important that you check your polling location before heading out, many voters were turned away due to recent precinct changes.

More than 2,500 people took advantage of early voting last week. Officials expect a 30 to 35 percent voter turnout Tuesday in Chatham County. Georgians still have until October to register for the general election coming up this November.
