Early vote strong, official says

Roane County Administrator of Elections Charles Holiway said he’s been pleased with the turnout for early voting.

Prior to its commencement on July 18, Holiway was encouraging people to take advantage of early voting because of a longer-than-usual ballot this year.

Figures from the Tennessee Secretary of State’s Office showed 5,413 people voted early in Roane County through Wednesday.

Election Day is Aug. 7.

Saturday is the final day to vote early.
