Over 1 million Tennesseans have cast ballots during early voting. State election officials said the tally of votes cast through Monday for the Nov. 6 general election topped 1 million. That’s about 14,000 more ballots than were cast in the same period in the 2008 presidential election. Secretary of State Tre Hargett said early voting turnout is outpacing comparable elections. In 2008, about 58% of all votes occurred during the early period. Tennessee’s in-person early voting ends tomorrow. In Coffee County over 9,000 people have voted early as of Tuesday.
