Thursday is the last day to early vote in Tennessee for the November 6 Election. 

Election officials have reported a spike in ballots ahead of Election Day.

As of Wednesday, more than 152,121 Davidson County voters used the early option. Statewide, more than 1 million ballots have been cast. Nearly 350,000 ballots were cast in the first three days. 

The election includes a high-profile senate race between U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn and Democratic former Gov. Phil Bredesen to replace retiring Republican Sen. Bob Corker.

In the governor’s race, polls show businessman Bill Lee with a lead over Democratic former Nashville Mayor Karl Dean in the race to succeed term-limited GOP Gov. Bill Haslam.
