Area residents who are eager to cast their votes for the Nov. 6 general election will have to wait just a little longer.
The early voting period in Tennessee starts Oct. 17 and ends Nov. 1.
The Messenger had two phone calls Monday and Obion County administrator of elections Leigh Schlager said she’s had people coming to her office asking about early voting for the past month. Monday was the last day to register to vote in the state for November’s election.
On the ballot in Obion County are city elections in seven communities — Hornbeak, Obion, Samburg, South Fulton, Troy, Union City and Woodland Mills — and the races for president, U.S. senator, U.S. congressman, state senator and state representatives in Districts 76 and 77. A Kenton Special School District vote is also on the ballot. Published in The Messenger 10.9.12
