Early Voting Importance

Following, the main poll officer said, “People are energetic and pleased to be here. With respect to the ballot, voters are encouraged to do their diligence and research before they come. That being said, early voting can happen anywhere in Blount County for residents. When they wait until the fourth; voters must go to their designated voting spot.”

Also, he said, “When residents vote early, we can help them with cosmetic issues. Say they have a Jr. in their name that they forget to include, we can easily go in and fix those things when early voting is considered. It is much harder to fill in those issues on election day.”

Poll officers in Blount County are accommodating and encouraging towards the voting process thus far.
