Election day is here and if early voting numbers are any indication, there could be an exceptional turnout in Calhoun County.
According to Supervisor of Elections Margie Laramore, 2273 Calhoun Countians cast ballots in early voting that wound up Saturday, breaking local records. Precinct 101 (formerly the Blountstown Library precinct) and 402 (previously the Scotts Ferry VFD precinct) had over 50 percent of registered voters cast ballots during early voting.
As of 3 p.m., an estimated 1075 absentee ballots had been returned. This afternoon, the election canvassing board began opening absentee ballots and feeding them into the voting machine, however, the votes will NOT be tallied until after 7 p.m. when polls close. That is also the deadline for anyone to submit an absentee ballot.
The County Record will be reporting results on our website as they become available.
If you haven't voted, get to the polls by 7 p.m.! Let's rock the vote, Calhoun County!!!!
