NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- At least double the amount of Tennesseans have voted early in this year's presidential primary compared to primaries in 2000 and 2004.
State Election Coordinator Brook Thompson says that as of Tuesday, about 205,000 voters had visited the polls. Early voting ends Thursday.
Thompson says the hotly contested election has led to the better turnout.
He also says as more candidates drop out of the races, voters become more comfortable with voting early.
The primary is Tuesday.
