Early Voting Total Surpasses 3,000

Putnam County election officials say more than 3,000 people have come by the Election Commission office so far to vote early in the May election. The office will be open from 8 am to 5 pm today and tomorrow and from 8 am to 7 pm on Thursday to accommodate early voters. By law, the early voting period ends on Thursday and anyone wishing to vote after that point must do so on Election Day, next Tuesday. The Election Commission office is located off South Willow Avenue on County Services Drive, in the same building as the Putnam County Health Department. Meanwhile, today is also the deadline for candidates to file what's called a Pre-Primary campaign finance report with the Election Commission. That report covers spending for the first few weeks of April.
