Early Voting Totals Topping 300 Per Day

Another 356 residents of Putnam County took advantage of the opportunity to vote early on Monday, bringing the three-day total to 784. Election officials say voters have another week and a half to go by the Election Commission office and cast their ballots before Early Voting wraps up on July 31st. Residents are choosing representatives on the city councils of Cookeville, Algood, Baxter and Monterey, as well as members of the Putnam County commission. The only two contested county-wide races are for Trustee and Road Supervisor, but the school board seats in Districts 2 and 4 are also being decided. Meanwhile, the state of Tennessee is conducting a primary election to determine the Republican and Democratic nominees for Governor, U.S. Congress, State Senate and State House of Representatives.
