The final number of early voters in the county is a little less than the 2016 primary election, in which 14,223, or about 10%, of registered voters made it to the polls.
Of the 13,650 who took advantage of early voting for this election, 51.7% cast Democratic Party ballots while 48.3% cast Republican Party ballots.
Early voting began Feb. 12 at two out of five locations in the county, including the Williamson County Administrative Complex at 1320 W. Main St., Franklin, and the John P. Holt Library at 8109 Concord Road, Brentwood. All five early voting locations opened Feb. 18, and early voting at all locations ended Feb. 25.
“Early voting is extremely popular with many of our voters because it allows some flexibility to those who may be unable to cast a ballot on election day,” Administrator of Elections Chad Gray said in a release. “However, if you do vote on election day, March 3, voters may now go to any of our 25 Election Day Convenience Vote Center sites from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. regardless of your place of residence inside the county.”
Tennessee, along with 13 other states, will participate in the March 3 Super Tuesday primary to help determine candidates for president. Williamson County voters will also see three incumbent Republican candidates running unopposed for three local positions, including Dusty Rhoades for sheriff; Brad Coleman for assessor of property; and Mike Spitzer for circuit court judge, 21st District.
