If early voting is any indication, this year's election could break records in Georgia.
Voters in some metro Atlanta counties are waiting in line up to three hours to vote early.
WSB Political Analyst Bill Crane calls the race for governor "A very passionate election." Crane told Atlanta's Morning News "People are feeling very connected to the issues and these candidates."
Recent polls from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Channel 2 Action News show most voters have already decided who they are going to vote for. "What we're seeing is somewhat divided among racial lines, definitely divided among partisan lines," Crane said.
Crane says both Democrat Stacey Abrams and Republican Brian Kemp are battling for a small number of undecided voters.
"You need independent voters, not just your party, to carry the day," Crane said.
Crane says minority voting numbers are reaching historic levels, but that doesn't necessarily mean a win for Abrams. "The key thing here is Barack Obama, in 2008, did set historic highs among minority voting, he didn't carry the state."
Long lines have been commonplace for early voting. At this pace, Crane believes more people may vote early than on Election Day.
Either way, turnout for this election could set a record. "We may actually see 55-60% or something comparable to a presidential election in Georgia," Crane said.
Cobb County elections officials are hopeful the lines will ease up when more early voting locations open starting on Saturday and into next week.
Early voting began Monday in Georgia.
