The Associated Press reported recently that nearly 350,000 ballots had been cast statewide in just the first three days of early voting.
Closer to home, the Shelby County Election Commission said 9,943 people voted on Friday (Oct. 26) alone, pushing the early ballot totals to more than 121,000. That, after this tweet from earlier in the week:
Polls closed for today. An estimated 14,000 people voted today, compared to 4 400 on day 5 in 2014. That bring the total of 5 days of Early Voting to about 58,000. That’s more than the 12-day total in 2014.
