In just one day, about a thousand people cast ballots.

This brings the total to well over 7,000 early votes.

The Board of Elections says turnout is unprecedented for a non-presidential election year.

They say candidates are campaigning hard.

They're going door-to-door to win the hearts of voters.

"We're about twice the record if not more from 2006," said Deb Cox, the supervisor of elections for Lowndes County. "So, this is really big for a midterm election. People are turning out to vote. People are interested."

Friday is the last day to vote early.

The Board of Elections will be open until 7 p.m.

Remember: the polls will be closed Monday, the day before Election Day.
