Election board workers anticipate an early rush when in-person ballots become available Friday.
Helen McReynolds, Carter County Election Board Secretary, said more voters are using the in-person ballots to vote early, particularly in major elections.


“In-person ballots are available to all registered voters,” McReynolds said. “Voters are not required to give a reason for voting early. Voting hours are from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Friday and Monday and 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. on Monday before the regular election and from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday.”


Each county election board has a two-member, bi-partisan voting board to assist voters with the application. LaRue Wilhite, Marshall County Election Board Secretary, said the in-person voters fill out a form when they arrive at the polling location. They are required to swear they have not voted by using a regular mail-in absentee ballot and will not vote at their precinct voting place on election day.
