That is number individuals who took advantage of advance voting in Georgia:
Secretary of State Karen Handel announced today voter turnout figures from the Georgia Presidential Preference Primary advance voting week. Voters were able to cast ballots at their county’s advance voting centers from Monday, January 28 through Friday, February 1, 2008.
“These numbers demonstrate Georgian’s interest in the Presidential Primary as well as their interest in the convenience of advance voting,” said Secretary Handel.
Monday – 22,456
Tuesday – 34,651
Wednesday – 38,073
Thursday – 42,679
Friday – 65,761
Total Advance Week Voters – 203,620
In addition to these early voters, 44,277 people have cast absentee ballots, either by mail or in office. To date, nearly 248,000 absentee and in-person advance votes have been cast in Georgia’s Presidential Preference Primary.
Secretary Handel also anticipates a large turn-out on Election Day, Tuesday, February 5, 2008. Handel projects turnout will be in excess of 30 percent.
“The nomination contests in each party appear highly competitive,” Handel said.
Voters will probably experience lines at polling places during peak times, which are historically from 7:00 a.m. until 9:30 a.m., 4:30 p.m. until 7:00 pm, and during the mid-day lunch hour.
Of course every single person was disenfranchised by the ID requirement.
