Early Voting Underway In Putnam County

Early voting is underway as of today in Putnam County. People can cast their votes early from now through the 31st of July at the county election commission office, off South Willow Avenue, or they can go to their precinct on Election Day August 5th. There is both a county general election and a state primary election on the ballot this time. The state primary will determine nominees for the offices of governor, congressman, state senator, and state representative. The county general election will have the offices of Trustee, Road Supervisor, Sheriff, County Executive, County Clerk and Register of Deeds. In addition, all seats on the Putnam County commission are up for election, as are three seats on the six-member county school board. The cities of Algood, Baxter, Monterey and Cookeville will also be holding municipal elections. Five council members will be elected from the ten candidates running for Cookeville council. Congressional Candidate Diane Black will be in Cookeville this afternoon as part of what she is calling an "Early Voting" tour.
