Election officials say Tennessee has set a record for early and absentee voting.  

Secretary of State Tre Hargett says almost 1.7 million people voted early in person or by mail, topping the record of almost 1.6 million during the 2008 presidential election.

The 2014 election results brought good news for Republicans and incumbents in west Tennessee.  Only one of the state legislators in the WKMS listening area failed to keep his seat, Democratic 74th District State Representative John Tidwell of western Montgomery, Houston, and Humphries counties.  Fellow Democratic State Representative Joe Pitts of Clarksville’s 67th District survived his challenge from independent candidate Mike Warner. 

We've crunched the numbers! Here are the returns, many districts with 100% of precincts reporting, as noted. Thank you for visiting wkms.org to get election returns and thanks to Kentucky Public Radio.
