NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Today is the last weekend day to vote early in the Nov. 3 election.

In Tennessee, the last day of early voting is Thursday, Oct. 29. Voters can also cast their ballot on Election Day, which is on Tuesday, Nov. 3.

“Early voting turnout has been strong across Tennessee,” said Secretary of State Tre Hargett. “I encourage voters to take advantage of the final Saturday of early voting to make your voice heard."

So far, more than 1 million Tennesseans have voted early. Each county throughout the state is reporting its highest-ever early voting numbers.

The Tennessee Secretary of State's Office said the numbers are up from the last presidential election in 2016. As of Thursday, Tennessee was nearly 47% ahead of the previous record.

Voters are encouraged to wear facial coverings and maintaining a distance of six feet from others when they head to the polls.
