Wilson County has got some very good voters, Warren said. In 2008, the total number of voters was 51,159.

There are more than 75,000 registered voters in Wilson County.

Early voting officially began in Wilson County on Wednesday, Oct. 17, but 528 voters had already cast their ballots by mail. Each day of early voting saw around 2,000 voters at the four locations, which included the Election Commission, the Mt. Juliet Community Center, the Watertown Community Center and the Gladeville Community Center. The lowest daily number of voters, only 1,230, showed up at the polls on Saturday, Oct. 20.

Many voters came out to all locations in Halloween costumes on Wednesday. Warren joked that one voters painted face made checking their photo ID to comply with the Tennessee Photo ID law difficult. He added on a serious note, that there were no problems during early voting and that everything went smoothly.

Col. Steve Koons donated his time on Wednesday to shuttle voters from their parking places to the Election Commission in Lebanon on the Election Express pulled by his tractor.

Polls will open again at 7 a.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6, and close that evening at 7 p.m.

On the ballot are the Presidential election, U.S. Senator, mayors in all three municipalities, city council and commission seats, state representatives and a sales tax referendum for Lebanon residents.
