If you aren’t aware, early voting in Montgomery County kicked off last week and it has been very successful.
County Election Board Secretary and Clerk Jennifer Bentley said early numbers show that people are turning out at an impressive rate.
“We have had over 200 people come out every day, since we began last week,” Bentley offered. “At the end of today we should be right around 2,000 early voters so far.”
While 2,000 may not seem like a lot of people who turn out to vote early, it is close to nine percent of the total number of registered voters in the county and there are still almost two weeks left of early voting.
Bentley also said that these numbers put them on pace to surpass early voting numbers for previous elections.
