ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) -- Massively long lines, hours long waits, and technical problems greeted early voters in many locations across Georgia as in-person early voting began Monday.
Early voters reported long lines at multiple locations around metro Atlanta including at the state's largest polling center at State Farm Arena. Fulton County officials said there was a technical glitch with the software and the machines were rebooted to allow voting to begin.
But the reports kept coming in throughout the morning of two and three hour wait times, if not more, across parts of Georgia. As of 2:30 p.m., multiple locations in Cobb County reported wait times over 360 minutes. The same was reported in Gwinnett County where Bogan Park reported a wait of four hours while the Elections Office reported a wait time of three-and-a-half hours.
CBS46 has reached out to officials with the Secretary of State's office and local election leaders and will update this story as more information comes in about the troubled first day of early voting.
