For those of you who have decided which candidates you support, you will have your chance to cast your ballots during the early voting period which begins on Wednesday, Oct. 15 and continues through Thursday, Oct. 30.
Of course, if you have not made up your mind yet, you can cast your ballots on Election Day, Nov. 4.
As of Thursday, there were 65,840 registered voters in Wilson County, said Lynn Harris, administrator of elections for the Wilson County Election Commission.
With Election Commission workers continuing to sort mail and process voter registration forms that were either mailed or brought in by prospective voters in person, Harris noted, "We’ll be over 66,000 easily. We’re working on it."
She said about 400 voters turned in their forms during office hours on Monday and several hundred arrived by mail. Monday, Oct. 6 was the deadline to register to vote for the Nov. 4 election.
