If you encounter any problems while you're voting, you can talk to election officers, your county clerk, the state Board of Elections (502-573-7100) or the Attorney General's Election Fraud Hotline (1-800-328-VOTE).

"Actually, I came here this morning and was going to vote early (but) had to pass it up because it was longer than expected", said voter Scott Proctor, who returned to vote during his lunch break. "This milestone is a testament to the hard work of thousands of election officials all across Georgia who are dedicated to secure, accessible, and fair elections for all".

In Fulton County alone, officials reported that 224,653 residents voted early. Election Day voting hours are 7:00 a.m.to 7:00 p.m.at all polling places statewide.

You are not allowed to wear any campaign apparel to the polls, and no cameras are allowed to be used while voting. Unlike the primaries, the general election is open to all registered voters. One man in a hurry filled out his provisional ballot on a piano instead of waiting in line for a booth. "Then we'll start talking about the 2020 elections, and around and around we go", said Andrea Vieux, assistant professor of political science at Johnson County Community College.

Polls are officially open as Election Day gets underway in the 2018 midterm elections.
