Tuesday early voting in Hopkins County recorded 818 ballots cast in person at the Justice of the Peace Precinct 2 Courtroom. The courtroom serves as the early voting place for the county.
According to Debbie Shirley, Hopkins County Clerk, “Everything is going smoothly, just really busy.” She said there have been several voters who have cast limited ballots. These individuals, who are registered in another county and did not register in Hopkins County in time for this election, cannot vote for local offices such as commissioners, county clerk, etc., but can cast ballots for state-wide offices such as U. S. Senate, Governor, and other Texas offices.
Early voting continues through November 2nd from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. each weekday with the exception of Tuesday, October 30th and Thursday, November 1st when early ballots may be cast from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Early voting will also be available Saturday, October 27th from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday, October 28th from noon until 5 p.m.
