Eager to vote

Warren County residents are rushing to the polls as early voting continues to draw a crowd.
A long waiting line formed Tuesday morning outside the Early Voting Room, located at the rear of Warren County Administrative Offices on Locust Street. Tuesday marked the sixth day of early voting and a determination by one local couple to be the first to vote.
“We’ve driven by three or four times since early voting began,” said Frances Adcock, as she and her husband Joel stood in line for 55 minutes waiting for the door to open. “This morning we decided that we would be the first ones in line to vote. We arrived at 8:05 a.m.”
Early voting started last Wednesday, Oct. 14. The five-day total prior to Tuesday was 3,202.
When asked about previous presidential elections with this much interest, Warren County administrator of elections Susie Davenport pointed to 2012.
“Eight years ago we probably had close to this turnout,” she said. “We are probably having a better turnout overall. Our absentees are higher.”
In 2012, incumbent president Barack Obama and his running mate, Vice President Joe Biden, were re-elected to a second term.
Early voting continues through Oct. 29. Election Day is Nov. 3
Early voting hours are Monday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Tuesday thru Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.
