NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- After only four days, nearly 10% of registered voters in Tennessee have hit the polls, according to new numbers from the TN Secretary of State's Office. Heading into the fifth day of voting, 387,933 voters have shown up to cast their ballots.
“I am pleased voter turnout remains strong,” said Secretary of State Tre Hargett. “Tennessee voters continue to take advantage of the flexibility and convenience of early voting.”
Based on reports from counties, Hargett's office said 31 voters were forced to use provisional ballots because they showed up without federal or state issued identification. Of those 31, sixteen voters have already returned with proper identification.
Early voting lasts through November 1st.
