Early voting to end Thursday

Friday, January 25, 2008

There are five and a half days left for early voting in Tennessee's part of the Feb. 5 Super Tuesday primary for Democrats and Republicans to select their nominees for president in the national election in November.

The Marshall County Election Commission office is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for early voting today and Monday through Thursday next week. Early voting hours tomorrow are from 8 a.m. until noon, election officials said.

"We've had, I think, a fair turnout for it to be a presidential primary," said Wynona Clark, one of the county-paid poll workers helping voters at the Hardison Annex office building on College Street where early voting is conducted.

To participate, voters must decide whether they want to vote in the Republican or Democratic primary and then select one of the candidates for that party's nomination.
