Kennedy said that yesterday, over 6,000 people cast their ballot in the general election. That number is slightly lower than the first day total from the 2008 election, but is more than double the turnout from the 2004 election. Kennedy said these numbers are very encouraging, and they expect an even bigger turnout today.

If you want to mail-in a ballot for the general election, Kennedy said the ballot must arrive at the elections office no later than October 30th. Absentee ballots will receive a 5-day grace period. Kennedy also addressed topics like voting expenses and early voting in smaller communities.

Early voting for the general election will continue until November 2nd. For a full list of early voting locations, visit KFYO.com.
