LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Saturday was the last day to register to vote in the Nov. 8 general election.    

Circuit courthouses in all 82 counties across the state were open until noon to allow folks to register. 

In Laurel, about two dozen people registered and about one dozen others cast absentee ballots at the Jones County Courthouse.    

"We've been busy with both, definitely the last day registration has been a little heavier than the voting, but we've had quite a few to come in and absentee vote," said Concetta Brooks, Jones County circuit clerk. "I think we're going to have a very heavy turnout here in Jones County for this race, this election, I think it's going to be very heavy." 

The last day to vote absentee for the general election is Saturday, Nov. 5.
