There were 590 people who voted Wednesday during the first day of early voting and Bill Lee was one of them.Lee, 76, is voting in his 15th presidential election. He remembers voting for Dwight Eisenhower as his first vote for president in 1956.Back then, the legal voting age was 21. Lee says he was able to vote on a technicality because his 21st birthday was on election day.“In Tennessee, they didn’t let you vote if you were 21 on election day,” said Lee.
