Voting starts out with bang in Grady County

GRADY COUNTY — Whether you’re Democrat or Republican-the lines at the polls do not discriminate-and they are only expected to get longer.

“The line went out the door and down the side of the building quite a long ways this morning. It is not as bad now in the afternoon though,” said Susan Turner Election Board Secretary at 2:30 on Friday.

Turner said everything is running smoothly so far but that it has been very hectic around the office.

“We had a complaint earlier today about a few Romney and Weir signs toward the front of the District Attorney’s office.  But those are several hundred feet away and are allowed to be there,” said Turner.

State Law requires all candidates signage to be at least 50 feet away from the entry of the polling facility.  

Though the lines have been longer as a trend in town and around the nation, it hasn’t stopped approximately 22 million people from voting early thus far according to the Associated Press.

Early voting continues tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and then again on Monday Nov.  5 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. with the General Election taking place on Nov. 6. On Election Day, there is no voting at the election board office, only at designated polling stations.
