The Daily News posted the story, “Shelby County Early Voting Tops 4,300“.
A total of 4,324 citizens had voted early through Monday, July 16, the last day of the 14-day voting period confined to five sites. Early voting expanded Tuesday to 22 additional sites across Shelby County.
The 4,324 early voters compares to 7,838 three days into the early-voting period in 2014 for the same election cycle of county general and state and federal primary elections. By the third day of early voting in 2014, the balloting had expanded to 20 satellite sites after days of voting at the election commission office Downtown.
In the 2010 elections for the same cycle, 8,876 citizens had voted early by the third day of the period, which again marked the point at which 20 other locations opened.
All of the turnout numbers include absentee ballots cast.
The early-voting period continues through July 28 in advance of the Aug. 2 Election Day.
