THOMAS COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) - There are 20 precincts in Thomas County, and with a 12 hour window to vote many residents are trying to encourage others to exercise their civic duty.

Frank Scoggins, Thomas County Elections Supervisor, said when early voting ended, one third of the county's registered voters cast ballots.

One Thomasville resident, Robin Ballard, said for those remaining, if you don't vote then you "don't have a right to complain." But she says there's one easy way to fix that. 

The polls will remain open in Thomas County until 7:00 p.m. Tuesday.
