The time to vote is now!

Friday, October 24, 2014

Early voting continues until 5 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 30, at the Election Office, 230 College Street, Lewisburg.

Early voting will also take place at the First United Methodist Church in Chapel Hill from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 27, to Thursday, Oct. 30.

As of Wednesday, after a week of early voting at the Election Office, just over 1,000 people had cast their ballots, reported Election Administrator Tristan Arnold.

Some people even asked her if they had to vote, since they voted in August.

The answer is, "Yes!"

Your vote will help decide who governs Tennessee, represents Marshall County in the state legislature, and who represents us in Washington, in both the Senate and the House. Also on the ballot are four important Constitutional amendments.

And voters in Cornersville will have a chance to put at least two new people on the Board of Mayor and Aldermen, as well as vote in a referendum on whether or not to allow a liquor store in their town, and whether to allow restaurants to serve liquor by the drink.

And yes, if you live in Cornersville, you can come up to Lewisburg next week and vote early at the Election Office -- don't miss this chance to shape the future of your town.

The Election Office is even open tomorrow morning from 8 a.m. to noon for your convenience.

So -- no excuses -- go vote!

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 4, the first Tuesday of November, the first Tuesday after Halloween, and the first Tuesday after the time changes.
