In Montgomery County, since early voting began October 17 close to 31,000 people have cast ballots. That figure includes absentee votes. Statewide the overall voter numbers are over 1,200,000 which is the second-highest early voting turnout in Tennessee history, having surpassed November of 2004, the last election with an incumbent president.
“We want to invite everyone to come out and take advantage of early voting. There may be a line today but I promise the line will move very quickly. Unless you like to stand in a slow moving line on Tuesday, Election Day, I would recommend you come by and get in line today,” said Vickie Koelman, Administrator of Elections for the county.
