Early Voting on Track to Surpass 2008 Levels

State Election Coordinator Mark Goins tells the Chattanooga TFP that early voting totals are likely to be higher this summer than in 2008, when about 206,000 people voted early statewide.
According to the state Division of Elections website, the statewide total on Friday was 121,304 (that included 81,854 Republican primary votes and 33,918 Democratic primary votes). Those totals don’t include some counties that didn’t get their Friday vote reported to the state and had their last update on Thursday.
“You’re going to see those numbers jump substantially in the last three or four days of early voting,” Goins told the newspaper (Note: His name is misspelled in the story).
