You guys in Gwinnett County did a terrible job with early voting at George Pierce Park on Saturday. My family and I waited for 6.5 hours. This is a fine demonstration of the incompetence of the people running this process. I don't blame the volunteers. The bureaucrats are the responsible parties. You are not doing your jobs and the rest of us have to pay for it. Ed Clark
