Tennesseans planning to vote early for the Presidential election have until this Thursday, to cast their ballots. Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 3.
In Hamilton County almost 73,000 had already voted by Saturday afternoon - with long lines at each of the four early voting sites.
That included 58,253 who voted early and 14,668 who sent in ballots by mail.
“We have seen high turnout numbers during early voting, and I urge Tennesseans to take advantage of these final days of early voting,” said Secretary of State Tre Hargett.
During early voting and on Election Day, Tennesseans are encouraged to wear a face covering and maintain a six-foot distance from poll officials and other voters.
Voters should expect to see signs with further safety instructions at their polling locations. All poll officials will be wearing face coverings and will be trained in social distancing measures.
