The wait at the East Cobb Government Center has been as long as 90 minutes today.
If you want to vote early this week in East Cobb, be prepared to wait for a while.

Even though mid-day temperatures Wednesday were approaching 60 degrees, those standing in the line at the East Cobb Government Center on Lowell Roswell Road were wearing winter jackets, caps and comfortable shoes.
The windy weather forecast is expected to remain the same the rest of the week, so if you're planning on casting your ballot there, patience is required.
