Long lines of voters like this one Tuesday morning at Parker Road prompted the Board of Elections to add a second early voting location in Rockdale County.

CONYERS — Beginning Monday, Oct. 19, Rockdale County voters will have a second early voting location where they can cast their ballots in the Nov. 3 General Election. The Board of Elections unanimously approved opening a second voting location at Springfield Baptist Church, 1877 Iris Drive, during a called meeting on Oct. 14. Georgia set an early voting record turnout of 128,876 on Monday, Oct. 12, and added 114,830 on Tuesday, Oct. 13, for a two-day total of 241,706. But many voters across the state had to wait in long lines for up to 11 hours to vote, due to the state voter registration system being flooded with too many voter verifications at one time.
