Tennessee Early Voting Turnout Strong

State election officials say Tennessee voters are continuing to make a strong turnout for early voting in the November 6 election. Turnout Wednesday topped 100,000 voters. Figures posted yesterday afternoon on the Division of Elections website said the statewide total of voters who have already cast was just under 731,000. The early voting period began October 17 and ends November 1. During the last presidential election in 2008, more than 1.5 million Tennesseans cast ballots during early voting. That was about 58 percent of all ballots cast in that election.
