Early voting for Aug. 2 starts today

CROSSVILLE — Early voting began today for persons wishing to cast ballots in the August 2 State Primary Election and the County General Election. Early voting will run from July 13-28 at the Election Commission Office in the Milo Lemert Building across Main St. from the Cumberland County Courthouse.

Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturdays from 8 a.m. until noon.

"I would encourage voters to take the opportunity to take advantage of the convenience to vote early and avoid potential lines at the polls on election day," Election Administrator Suzanne Smith said.

All that is required to cast a ballot is a state or federal photo ID, Smith said.

In the County General Election, local voters will elect school board members in the 2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th Districts. Voters in the 9th District will choose from between four candidates to fill the unexpired term of the late Clyde Cramer.

The office of county tax assessor is on the ballot but Republican David W. Simcox does not have a Democratic opponent.

Likewise with the Congressional race. Incumbent Diane Black is being challenged by Lou Ann Zelenik on the Republican ticket, with the winner taking all since there is no Democratic Party opponent. Cameron Sexton is unopposed in the Republican Primary for the 25th Representative District. Flo Matheson is unopposed in the Democratic Primary for the 25th Representative District.

There are four challengers to incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Bob Corker.

Anyone with questions about the photo requirement, their status or with questions about the ballot can call the election commission office at 484-4919.
