Cool and good to know. Good luck with your campaign and even better you didn't have to wait long to vote!

I went yesterday to the Adamsville location (same place my wife went Thursday and was in/out in 15 minutes). When I arrived, they said it was a 45 minute wait and seated people in the gymnasium and called ticket numbers. I think I actually waited about 15 minutes before getting moved to the registration room, where I waited maybe 10 minutes before getting through and voting. So I think I was in and out in half an hour.

At Fulton County Government center Downtown Atlanta on Thursday around 3:40 pm no wait. It was sweatless.

Go, Bob! It'll be great to have a bona fide elected official on the boards.

I did my voting today, it was only a 15 minute wait. I recall from some prior elections, voting on Election Day having to wait way longer like well over an hour or so to vote.

I don't remember when early voting passed into law here in GA, but it definitely good for those of us who cannot easily take off time from work to vote on election day.

I went to Gwinnett/Snellville location today around noon...the line was wrapped around the building & there was a 5 hour wait! There were people still in line who had been there since 7AM. I left...I will try again on Monday. I think the large crowd was due to it being the last Saturday for early voting.

Got in line at 10:44am & cast my ballot at 2:03pm today, not sure if that's a long line or not, had some tunes on my head so it didn't seem like a long time, but I think it was a long wait.

I saw your pic on the ledger news website. That's pretty encouraging to me to see you put yourself out there like that. I want to have the cojones to do the same and achieve my dreams some day.

I can definitely see you winning a seat on the Holly Springs City Council.

Best of luck and God bless you on your journey.
