Tennessee voters have continued to come in large numbers during the first  days of early voting. Statewide, a total of 387,933 voters had cast their  ballots leading into Monday.

“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.”

In Macon County’s local ballot, record numbers have turned out to vote  early—starting with the first day. Administrator of Elections Barry Doss said  that by Monday we were set to pass up the total number of voters from the entire  early voting period in the last election.

Total votes as of the end of the voting period on Monday, October 22 came to  1693, including absentee votes.
