Early Voting begins Friday, July 18, for the Aug. 7 Federal and State Republican and Democratic Primaries and the Wilson County General Election.
There will be four convenient Early Voting sites available in Wilson County again this election.
“Having four conveniently located Early Voting sites makes voting available to Wilson County voters near where they work, shop or live. Each election, more voters are finding that by taking advantage of Early Voting they avoid possible bad weather, lines or anything else that might keep them from their assigned polling place on Election Day,” said Phillip Warren, administrator of Elections.
Wilson County General Election ballot has every county office except property assessor, all Wilson County and 15th Judicial District judges, state Supreme and Appellate Court Judges and two countywide referendums making this the longest ballot since 2006. Sample ballots are available online at www.WilsonElections.com and will be printed in the local papers and will be posted at all Early Voting sites and Election Day Polls.
“Sample ballots and the 2014 Voter Handbook are available on our website to provide election and voting information to prepare Wilson County voters for the upcoming election. We fill our website with resources to make the voting experience in Wilson County the best it can be,” Warren said.
Many voters have posted pictures on the Election Commission’s Facebook page to increase awareness of Early Voting. Voters are encouraged to join this effort by downloading the sign from www.WilsonVotes.com taking a picture, posting it on Facebook and Twitter (using #wilsonvotes) and sharing the information with friends.
“With this effort to promote Early Voting, Wilson County has expanded the successful statewide voter registration drive initiated by Secretary of State Tre Hargett and Coordinator of Elections Mark Goins,” Warren said. “It has been great to have voters involved in spreading information about Early Voting and elections through social media. They encourage their friends and followers to participate in elections and to vote.”
