Early Voting in Georgia, Absentee in South Carolina

There's only one week until election day, and many people in Georgia aren't waiting to cast their votes. More than a thousand people have already turned out to take advantage of early voting.

In Chatham County, anyone can vote all this week from 8am to 5pm. The only location is at the voter registration office at the county house. Use the MLK Street entrance and bring your identification. Elsewhere in Georgia, call your county elections office for locations.

People in South Carolina have been flooding the board of elections as well. Except, in the Palmetto State, you can't vote early unless you're voting absentee, and you need a valid reason to get an absentee ballot.

If you're not going to be in town on election day, you can pick one up at the Hilton Head Town Hall Library or the Arthur Horne Building in Beaufort from 9am to 4pm through Friday. Next Monday, November 1, it will be from 9am to 5pm.

So far, more than 7,000 voters have cast absentee ballots.

And for all your election coverage, make sure you watch your vote count on WTOC next Tuesday night, November 2. We'll have election results after the polls close, and bring you frequent local updates on air and online.
