Early voter turnout continues to be consistent with 761 votes cast Thursday for a total of 3,288 voters out of the approximately 22,000 registered Hopkins County voters having cast a ballot with one week remaining.
The last day for the election officials to receive a ballot by mail or paper ballot is October 28th. This weekend, the early voting place will be open Saturday 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. and on Sunday one may vote early from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m.
County Clerk Debbie Shirley reminds those voting electronically to go all the way to the end of the ballot to the summary page to be assured their vote has been recorded properly. She said, “If you have any questions, do not push the red button. Ask a worker for assistance if there is a problem.” Early voting continues through the end of next week. Sample ballots are found on the Hopkins County website. Parking at the new Jefferson Street Parking lot, accessed off Rosemont Street, is being used by many voters.
