There is just one day left for voters to take advantage of early voting in the General and Municipal elections.

There's been a rush of Gwinnett voters who have taken advantage of the chance to cast their votes early in the upcoming presidential election. As of Oct. 29 some 40,666 Gwinnett County residents have cast their votes during the early voting period and another 11,032 have cast their votes by mail according to Joe Sorenson, spokesman for the county.

According to Walton County election officials, as of Oct. 30, 10,955 voters had cast their ballots.
