For some Blacks who voted early in Cobb County, Atlanta, they had to pay the price of standing in a long line and waiting approximately an hour and forty-five minutes. Although, about a dozen or so White voters grew restless and left, not a single African-American voter walked away, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. However, the racial percentage has dropped a bit. Blacks only make up about 37 percent of all early votes in Georgia. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported, as of close of business Monday, 499,582 ballots had been cast and Cobb County has been averaging 1,400 early votes a day.
