Early voting draws crowds across Young County
Only two days into early voting, Young County had a 10% total turnout from its registered voters in the general election this week. The election will serve as the third election in Young County after COVID-19 restrictions were implemented and slowly loosened locally and statewide following the special election for the Texas Senate District 30 seat which was held late September.
Early voting in the November General Election began Tuesday and is extended through Oct. 30 in Texas. Early voting by personal appearance will be conducted weekdays from Oct. 13-16 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Oct. 19-23 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Oct. 24 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Oct. 26-30 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The last day to register to vote across the state was Monday, Oct. 5.
Early voting locations will be North Central Texas College at 928 Cherry St. in Graham and Olney Community Library at 807 W. Hamilton in Olney. Voters registered in Young County can vote at either location.
