Tomorrow, Saturday, Feb. 20, is the last weekend opportunity to cast an early ballot in the March 1 presidential preference primary.

Tomorrow, Saturday, Feb. 20, is the last weekend opportunity to cast an early ballot in the March 1 presidential preference primary, or “SEC Primary, according to the state Division of Elections.

So far 140,003 Tennesseans have chosen to vote early, which may be an important option this election cycle because of recent unpredictable winter weather. The number of presidential candidates as well as the number of delegates could also create incredibly long ballots for some voters.

As of Thursday, 4,537 Williamson Countians had voted early, or 5.5% of the eligible voters. Of those, 75.4% chose a Republican ballot, and 24.6% voted in the Democratic primary.

Six Southern states will join Tennessee to help decide who could be the next president of the United States. The Volunteer State’s clout could mean more primary interest than in years past.

Early voting ends Tuesday, February 23. Election Day is Tuesday, March 1.

In Williamson County, early voting is offered at the Williamson County Administrative Complex, 1320 West Main Street, Franklin; the Brentwood Library, 8109 Concord Road, Brentwood; Fairview Recreation Center, 2714 Fairview Boulevard, Fairview; Nolensville Recreation Center, 7250 Nolensville Road, Nolensville; and Longview Recreation Center, 2909 Commonwealth Drive, Spring Hill.

Each of these voting sites will be open from Feb. 16 through Feb. 23, and will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 20.

In Maury County, early voting will be conducted at the Election Commission Office (1207A Tradewinds Drive, Columbia), which is off of James Campbell Blvd. between Highway 412 and the Hospital.
