Tuesday, Nov. 6 is the final opportunity for registered voters in Williamson County to cast their ballots. Polls will be open at all locations from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
At the close of early voting, Nov. 1, the Williamson County Election Office reported a 50 percent turnout for the Early Voting period with 67,199 of the 134,562 registered voters casting ballots.
Election official Chad Gray said, “Early Voting ended with a bang. Nearly 6,500 ballots were cast. The Factory at Franklin and the TN Baptist Convention Headquarters [had] lengthy lines on the last day as Election Day approaches.”
In comparison, during the previous Presidential Election, Nov. 4, 2008, 70,302 out of 121,098 registered voters cast ballots during early voting with an additional 23,678 turning out for Election Day. This equates to 74 percent of the then-registered voters during Early Voting and 77.6 percent by the close of polls on Election Day.
