County extends early voting hours

Man, Cliff Rodgers is making this blogging stuff easy for me. The guy has sent out a news release almost every other day. Ah, elections. (Can't wait until they're over.)

In his latest, the Knox County's top election official said the county will will extend its early voting hours “to encourage more folks to go to the polls before Election Day.”

“We're experiencing the highest voter turnout in the history of Knox County,” he said. “With all the uncertain weather, we're hoping folks will avoid the lines on Election Day and vote this week.”

Early voting locations will be open through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., except for the Deathstar, which marches to its own dark tune.

Additionally, the election commission will open another early voting location today at the University Center on UT's campus. Rodgers said he hopes the move encourages students, faculty, etc. to vote.
