COLQUITT COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) - It's election day in Georgia!

The polls are open and people are turning up to vote in the primaries.

The polls have been open since 7 a.m. Tuesday and at last count, they had just over 100 people cast paper ballots.

1,160 people voted early, and although the primaries generally are not as busy as the November election, they're still important.

Lewis also recommends glancing over a sample ballot before you cast your vote, that way you're making an informed decision about your next political leaders.

And of course, the message from everybody today: It doesn't matter who you vote for, as long as you vote.

The polls are open throughout Georgia until 7 p.m. Tuesday.
