Early voting in the Nov. 3 election starts tomorrow.
Jackson County Administrator of Elections Clay Thaxton says early voting is open to all voters beginning tomorrow and will run through Oct. 29.
Thaxton is expecting the election cycle to be busier than usual.
He expressed that there has been an increase of registered voters in the county, and he has seen a large increase in the number of absentee ballots requested.
“We have seen the number of absentee ballot requests nearly double,” Thaxton said. “We normally see around 150 absentee ballots, but this election we have had 285 so far.”
