Elections Manager Paige Thompson said she is still looking for more poll workers, in case they need backups to fill in, but they have enough staffers at the moment. They hired 75 new poll workers during their latest push, and they have about 550 total workers.
Monday morning was not quite as busy as expected, Thompson said, but more people tend to come out later in the early voting period.
Those interested in becoming a poll worker may stop by the elections office on the third floor of the Hall County Government Center at 2875 Browns Bridge Road.
