|Below are a couple of tables with the final tally of early voting
numbers. The first table has the breakdown on voting by absentee, the
Lenoir City, Loudon and Tellico Village early voting locations.
The second table is the final tally by precinct.
In addition, my unofficial count shows that 18 residents voted in the democrat primary. 12 in the second district where there was a democrat candidate, 6 in other districts with no democrat candidates.
If Loudon County follows the current pattern over the last few election cycles, approximately 60% of the vote was cast early with approximately 40% coming on election day. With 4072 having voted early county wide, that would suggest that 2,700-2,800 should vote on election day.
With slightly more than 33,000 registered voters in Loudon County, we'll be lucky if 20% actually vote. That's really unfortunate. We'll know around 9:00 pm Tuesday night.
