Today kicks off the final week of early voting prior to the Nov. 2 General Election.
According to Kaufman County Voter Registrar Dick Murphy, more and more people every year are taking advantage of the opportunity to vote early in elections. With a gubernatorial election topping this November's ballot, it seems this election season is drawing some early interest as well.
Through the end of the day Saturday, more than 4,400 people had voted early for the election. Of those numbers, 1,427 ballots were cast in Forney, 1,173 in Kaufman, 473 in Kemp, 1,160 in Terrell and 159 in Crandall/Combine.
If you haven't cast your ballot yet, you can do so Monday through Friday at the county subcourthouses.
