Knoxville (WVLT) - It's hard to believe, but city elections are right around the corner.
Today was the first official day of early voting.
Mayor Bill Haslam and his wife came out to cast their vote at the Knox County courthouse along with several other eager voters.
Election administrator, Greg Mackay, says that he expects half of all voters to cast their vote before September 25th because it's so easy, "It's very popular if you are with your friend because both of you can go to the same place and vote if one lives on one side of town and the other lives on the other side. It doesn't matter where you live you can go to any one of the locations during the period."
Knox Countians can vote, until September 20th, from 10:00am to 6:00pm at all locations.
Those hours will change a little closer to the September 25th election day.
