Early Voting Turn Out Good in Morgan, Slow in Greene With Less Than A Week To Go

Early voting has less than a week to go ahead of the June 28th primary.

Morgan County Clerk Jill Waggener says that early voting at the courthouse has been going well: “I feel that early voting is going very well. We have a few people who come in every day, and I’m encouraged by that turn out.”

Riverbender reported on Friday that Greene County has had a slightly lower turnout than expected for that county’s early voting. Greene County Clerk Debbie Banghart says she expects early voting in that county to be around 40-50% for the primary, which is lower than average.

Waggener says this weekend has extended early voting hours on Saturday at the Morgan County Courthouse: “We will be open this Saturday, June 25th from 9AM-Noon for early voting only. The day of the election, the Clerk’s office will be closed for normal operations, but of course, the office will be open for any election topics.”

Polls will open on Primary Election Day next Tuesday, June 28th at 6AM and close at 7PM. For now, if you would like to vote during regular business hours, early voting remains open at the Morgan County Courthouse from 8:30AM-4:30PM Monday through Friday.
