Early Voting at the Tate Center Is Crazy Right Now

University of Georgia students are lining up in droves today to vote at the Tate Student Center—the first time Athens-Clarke County has set up an early-voting site on campus.

As of about 11:30 a.m., more than 800 people had already voted today at Tate, according to Student Government Association President Houston Gaines. He was kind enough to send some photos of lines snaking through the building and out the door, which are posted above and below.

Early voting at Tate runs through 5 p.m. today, and the polling place there will be open from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. Wednesday as well.

Athens-Clarke County’s other early voting sites are the Board of Elections office, City Hall ( both open 8 a.m.–5 p.m. through Friday) and the ACC Library on Baxter Street (open 10 a.m.–6 p.m. through Thursday and until 5 p.m. Friday).

Early voting ends Friday, and Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 8.
