More Than 400 Cast Ballots On First Day Of Voting

Putnam County election officials say more than 400 people took advantage of the first day of Early Voting to cast ballots for the November election. Officials say that shows an increased interest in this particular election, perhaps because of the mid-term Congressional elections or because the cities of Cookeville and Algood have liquor questions on their ballot. The races being voted on include those for Tennessee governor, Tennessee House, Tennessee Senate, and United States House of Representatives. In the races for governor and Congress, there are no incumbents, but in the races for state legislature, incumbents Henry Fincher and Charlotte Burks have opponents, while incumbent Charles Curtiss does not have.
