Today was the last day of early voting in the state of Georgia. Polls closed today at 5:30 p.m. 

Lines were long at the Bibb County Board of Elections in Macon, where voters had to wait almost two hours at some points.

Most voters said early voting fit better with their schedules, and some said it also avoids confusion when it comes to finding your polling place on election day.

"If you wait to the last minute, you have to find out what poll you would vote at, and I know that this poll accepts anyone," said Macon voter Julia King.

In Jones County, at the Jones County Government Center in Gray, lines were a lot shorter.  Most there were able to cast their ballots within a few minutes. "We've had lines throughout the day, but we have some new technology that allows us to process people much quicker," says election Superintendent Marion Hatton.

In Twiggs County, at the Courthouse in Jeffersonville, lines were also very short.

Voters who cannot make early voting can also vote at their traditional polling place on Tuesday.
