ATLANTA - With just over a week to go to Election Day, more than a million ballots have already been cast in Georgia. Now, early voting enters the next phase with statewide Saturday voting.
Polls in all 159 Georgia counties will be open this Saturday, but hours of operation vary by county.

"Georgia voters are highly enthusiastic and taking full advantage of unprecedented access to the ballot box," Secretary of State Brian Kemp said in a statement sent to 11Alive News.
Kemp responded to Donald Trump calling the elections "rigged," saying his office has been working with county and state partners for over a year to test voting equipment.
"Confidence in a voting system is not earned over night. It is built vote by vote, election by election," Kemp said in the statement. "With over 45 million votes accurately cast, captured, and tabulated, Georgia's battle-tested voting equipment and the election officials who manage the system have earned voters' confidence."
That confidence comes despite an 11Alive investigation showing that Georgia officials are launching at least ten formal investigations into election irregularities.
“When you're dealing with 6 million voters and 159 counties and a lot going on there are going to be issues,” Kemp told 11Alive's Valerie Hoff. “It's the way we handle them that's going to give folks confidence.”
