He said the campaign took him to every county in the state and he understood the Georgian people as he called it by common sense with less state and conservative values.

Kemp also had some voting problems. When he tried to vote, his voting card said "invalid." He had to go back and get another card.

Despite claims for voter irregularities and problems, Huddleston Kemp asked if he thought he should have stepped down as Secretary of State to apply for governorship.


ELECTION 2018 COVER:


We have been on the offensive, we have made progress and you can not deal with politics, we just have to ask every day whether it was a good day or a bad one Day, "said Kemp.

Kemp followers will meet in Athens as soon as the polls close at 19.00.

Abrams and her campaign will be watching the results at a downtown Atlanta hotel.

Channel 2 political reporter Richard Elliot spent the day with Abrams campaign. She started in Buena Vista, then went to Columbus and worked her way back to the Metro Atlanta.

On Tuesday afternoon, Abrams campaigned for the popular Busy Bee restaurant in southwest Atlanta.
She was there with Rev. Jesse Jackson, who ran for president in 1988.

Abrams said she knows there are long queues at polling stations, but she urges her followers to stay in those ranks and vote

"We had a bit of trouble. We know that we had trouble choosing places, but I need people to know that they have to stay in line. Do not let problems get you out of hand. As long as you're in line, if the polls close at 19.00, you can vote and we need your support, "Abrams Elliot said.

Abrams was one of nearly 2.1 million Georgians who voted early.

If none of the candidates receives the majority vote, a runoff vote will be made on 4 December.

Much depends on Performance of the libertarian candidate Metz.

If the electoral space between Kemp and Abrams is close enough, even a small percentage of votes for Metz could force the two major party candidates into a runoff.

60-year-old Metz is a retired insurance agent and financial planner whose campaign focuses on promoting industrial hemp.
