THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) — Early voting ends Friday in Georgia, with Thomasville seeing a steady number of walk-in votes, despite the coronavirus pandemic.

The Thomas County elections supervisor, Frank Scoggins, says they are taking all of the precautions to keep people who are voting in person safe.

While it’s been slower than past election days, Scoggins says foot traffic has picked up around Thomas County.

“The unique thing about this is we’re bringing the presidential preference primary forward, so we really have two elections," said Scoggins. "We’ve got the presidential primary election, if you haven’t voted for it, it will be on the ballot as well as the May general primary and non partisan election.”

Scoggins says if you voted back in March, that vote will still be counted.
