CSRA (WJBF) – It’s Midterm Election day in the two-state and across the country as voters make their voices heard at the polls.
Polls are open from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday.
Anyone who is waiting in line to vote at 7:00 p.m. will be allowed to vote.
Most states do not require you to bring your voter registration card to the polls. But a majority of states do expect you to provide another form of ID to vote in person.
In Georgia, if a photo ID is not presented, the voter votes on a provisional ballot and must return to show ID within 3 days.
