Tennessee voters turned in a strong showing at the polls yesterday, the first day of early voting for the November 6 election. With all 95 counties reporting, a statewide total of 121,406 voters cast their ballots yesterday.
“I am pleased with the huge turnout we have seen to begin the early voting period,” said Secretary of State Tre Hargett. “It is my hope that as many Tennesseans as possible take advantage of the flexibility that early voting allows.”
Early voting will continue through Thursday, November 1. Voters with questions regarding the locations and hours of early voting are encouraged to contact their local election commission offices.
