“This is what I expected,” he said.
“You didn’t expect a crowd?”
“Never did,” he said.
Mattison was voting at Mount Calvary Baptist Church on Wrightsboro Road, where finding a parking spot also wasn’t an issue
Though there are three key Republic Primary runoffs on the ballot here, Mount Calvary is solid Democratic primary territory.
“A little over 90 percent Democratic here, we have maybe a good two percent Republican.”

Mister Mattison got a Democratic Primary ballot but says he only voted because he saw that the poll was open.
“I just came by and saw what was going on so decided to come in,” he said.

With just under an hour to go 17 people have voted at Mount Calvary.
