(The Center Square) — While early voting is up nationally, it was down in Tennessee this midterm season compared to 2018.
After early voting, there were 882,310 votes cast in Tennessee. In 2018, that total was 1,378,840 while it was 629,485 in 2014.
A nationwide Gallup poll showed that four in 10 voters planned to vote before Election Day with 41% expected to vote early this year compared to 26% in 2010.
Media reports have shown that roughly 200 voters cast votes in the wrong races in Davidson County due to confusion related to new districts after Nashville was split into three U.S. House districts following the mandated redistricting process.
