“Very pleased,” said Connie Kelly, director of elections for Richmond County.

In 2010, 455 voters cast their ballots in the first two days of early voting. Kelly said the 2010 general election didn’t attract this year’s day one total until the fourth day.

There are 30,530 registered voters in Richmond County.
