Voting hours in Wilson County will be extended on the final day of Early Voting, Thursday, Nov. 3, at all five Early Voting sites - from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.
According to local election officials, Wilson County voters have turned out in record numbers since the first day of the process. Extending the hours on the final day will give voters another opportunity to skip Election Day lines and cast an early vote.
"Voters in Wilson County have the advantage of well-trained election workers and an enhanced voting system that together will make their voting experience the best it can be. We encourage voters to be familiar with the ballot before coming to vote and to review their choices on the ballot-marking screen and on the printed ballot card before casting their vote," Wilson County Administrator of Elections Phillip Warren said.
With five Early Voting locations in the county, there is a site close to every voter. Taking advantage of Early Voting allows voters to cast their vote at a time and place they choose. On Election Day, voters are required to vote at their assigned polling place.
The voter card is not required to be able to vote, officials noted. Voters that are registered in Wilson County need only bring their Tennessee or federally issued photo ID to be eligible to vote. First-time voters in Wilson County may need a Tennessee ID with the correct address or another form of ID to vote. Questions about what ID is needed, about your registration and another election-related matter can be answered by calling the Wilson County Election Commission at (615) 444-0216.
Early Voting is available today from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. and tomorrow from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. The five locations are the Wilson County Election Commission office in Lebanon, Watertown Community Center, Mt. Juliet Community Center, Gladeville Community Center and Lighthouse Church in Mt. Juliet.
