Hundreds of people lined up at the Bibb County Board of Elections office Monday for the first day of early voting.

Although we won't have official numbers until late, Elections Supervisor Elaine Carr says it's typical to see a high turnout for an election like this.

The line of voters extended outside the Bibb County Board Elections office, and inside the sight was similar.

"It was a hurry up and wait," says voter David Smith. "They wait outside a long time and then you finally get in, you thought you were going to be able to vote. It kind of like being at Six Flags or Disney World."

Signs hung nearby promoting local candidates, but most voters say the presidential race is what brought them to the polls.

They say they waited for an hour, up to an hour and a half, some for their first chance to vote.
