Early voting for the city of Franklin Board of Mayor and Aldermen election has been ongoing for the past two weeks, and totals show the number of voters in this year's election is still down from 2017.

Just 1,504 registered voters in the city have cast their ballot in the election so far—about 2.8% of registered voters—according to totals released Oct. 16 by Williamson County election officials.

Totals show wards 3 and 4 have the highest voting totals at 473 each, while Ward 1, located on the east side of the city, has the lowest turnout with just 170 votes cast.
