One Week Left For Early Voting

Putnam County Election officials say that more than 2,300 voters have chosen to cast their ballots early so far in this election cycle. The Early Voting period for the August election will end this Saturday. Voters in Algood, Cookeville, Monterey and Baxter are choosing members of their city councils, while those who don't live in the cities are voting on the races for Trustee, Road Supervisor, and other county-wide offices. Meanwhile, the Republican and Democratic parties in the state of Tennessee are also having primary elections for the offices of Governor, U-S Representative, State Senate, and State Representative. Voters who wish to participate in that primary must choose which primary they want to vote in. Sample ballots are posted at the entrance of the Election Commission office, located off South Willow Avenue on County Services Drive.
