Byrdstown, Tennessee 38549 -- Thursday, July 24, 2014

Beginning Friday, July 16, and continuing through July 31, registered voters will have the opportunity to cast their ballots for the August 5th state primary, county general, and municipal elections. Tim Clark, Administrator of Elections for Pickett County, is encouraging voters to take advantage of early voting. “Local voters have come to enjoy the benefits and convenience of voting early,” Administrator Clark said. “Voters can vote at their convenience and not worry about rushing to the polls on Election Day.” “In November 2008, approximately 58 percent of the registered voters who voted in the election in Tennessee took advantage of early voting,” Secretary of State Tre Hargett said. “I expect a significant number of voters to vote early this election as well.” Tennessee Coordinator of Elections Mark Goins will be kicking off the first day of early voting by casting his own ballot. “Early voting is convenient and has become very popular in Tennessee,” Coordinator Goins said. “I know I will be busy on Election Day, so voting early ensures my vote will be cast within my schedule. It just makes sense to vote at a time convenient to me.” For people who cannot or would prefer not to vote on Election Day, early voting provides an additional 14-day period to cast ballots, including three Saturdays this election year. Voters may vote in the county general election, as well as the state primary elections. Registered city voters may also vote in the Byrdstown municipal election. Voters choosing to vote in the state primaries will select either the Republican or Democrat ballot. Early voting is taking place in the Election Office at the Community Center. The hours for early voting are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Early voting ends Saturday, July 31.
