It is election day in south Fulton and polls opened at 7 a.m. this morning.

According to Fulton County Public Affairs Manager Jessica Corbitt, voting has run smoothly so far.

“It’s been steady but fairly light during the early hours,” she said.

Corbitt said she expects to see more crowds at the polls later in the day.

Fulton County turnout prediction is about 20 percent, similar to the 2009 municipal elections.

There are about 679,000 voters in the county.

Mayoral elections in south Fulton include Jarius McDaniel and Vince Williams on the Union City ballot and Andy Korta, Clyde Mitchell, Jannquell Peters and Earnestine Pittman on the East Point ballot.

College Park, Fairburn, Hapeville and Palmetto are holding city council member elections today.

Voting will continue until 7 p.m.
