Tennessee voters turned in a strong showing at the polls Wednesday, the first day of early voting for the Nov. 6 election. With all 95 counties reporting, a statewide total of 121,406 voters cast their ballots Wednesday.
“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.”
There were 6,648 early votes cast in Hamilton County on the first day of early voting.
Early voting will continue through Nov. 1. Voters with questions regarding the locations and hours of early voting are encouraged to contact their local election commission offices.
