After months of sometimes bitter debate, the Presidential election is finally here. In Jackson County, the final balloting is taking place amid a rainy, cool day. But that hasn't seemed to dampen turnout as some voting locations report people standing outside in the rain to vote.
In addition to the Presidential race, Georgia voters will also decide on a controversial amendment that would allow the state to approve new charter schools. That issue has been hotly debated across the state in recent weeks, including forums in Jackson County where both sides presented their views.
Polls close at 7 p.m. and returns should begin coming in within the hour after that. Nationally, however, some predict it could be days before the Presidential election is resolved due to a large number of provisional ballots cast in some key swing states.
