Jasper County voters are continuing to pour into polling places, which is on track with what we’re seeing across the country as big numbers are being reported during early voting in the 2020 General Election.
Jasper County Clerk Debbie Newman said early Thursday afternoon that approximately 3,300 people had voted at the five early voting locations in the county. On the first day, which was Tuesday, over 1,500 ballots were cast, and on Wednesday that number climbed to just over 2,600. Newman said approximately 700 more ballots had been cast by early Thursday afternoon.
KJAS News archives show that during the last Presidential Election on the first day of early voting in October of 2016, about 700 votes were cast in Jasper County which, at that time, was considered a huge turnout.
In the 2016 General Election, a total of 8,046 votes were cast in Jasper County. Now, in 2020, we're nearly halfway to that number just three days into early voting.
