Wilson County voter turnout sets record

  Email   Print

Wilson County voters turned out in record setting numbers for this year's Republican and Democratic Presidential Preference Primary. Records were set not just on Election Day but also in Early Voting participation.

The last Presidential Preference Primary with no incumbent President on the ballot was in 2008. That year, 22,318 people voted in that primary. The next presidential primary was in 2012 when 13,560 votes were cast. The primary election this year on March 1 saw a record-breaking turnout of more 28,000 Wilson County voters.

Early voting was available at all four locations in Wilson County before the Primary as it will be before all elections this year. Records were set during the Early Voting as well as on Election Day. The largest number of voters taking advantage of Early Voting in a PPP was in the 2008 election when 3,815 voters went to the polls early. This year a new high was set with more than 8,600 voters skipping the lines on Election Day by voting during the early voting period.

Wilson County has 31 Election Day polling sites and voters must vote at the poll assigned to them on Election Day. Polling locations are designated to each voter based on the address of their residence.

Administrator of Elections Phillip Warren said, "Election days are made possible through the service of our neighbors and fellow Wilson County voters who invest time in training, preparing and working the polls each election. They provide a service to Wilson County that is overlooked and often underappreciated."

The polls are staffed with more than 300 Wilson County voters. Poll Officials work from 6 a.m. a until the last voter in line at 7 p.m. has voted.

"2016 is an exciting and busy election year for Wilson County voters," said Warren. "There are two more elections scheduled for this year. We encourage voters to make sure their voter registration information is current and to check the status of their registration and be ready to vote during Early Voting or on Election Day."
