1,413 votes in first week, early voting ongoing

The first week of early voting was busy at the Pike County courthouse, with 1,413 voters casting their ballots, including more than 300 absentee ballots. There are 12,364 registered voters in Pike and 8.7% voted in the first week. Early voting is ongoing at the courthouse through Friday, Nov. 4 and early voting will also be offered Saturday, Oct. 29 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. In addition to four proposed Constitutional amendments, ballots include the presidential candidates, one U.S. Senate race, the 115th Congressional race, the public service commissioner race and unopposed local candidates. ’There have been a lot of voters, but most are finished really quickly,’ said registrar Sandi Chamblin. ‘I’m looking for a record turnout this year. In 2008, we had a total of 4,402 absentee and early voters. We had 45 days of early voting verses 16 days this year. Come and vote early to avoid the lines on election day.’
