Knox County residents can still elect to vote early, according to Kim Horn, director of the Knox County Board of Elections. As of Tuesday, more than 5,107 county residents had chosen to vote early, with 3,877 requesting a mailed ballot.
Early votes can still be cast until 4 p.m. Monday, Nov. 1. Those wanting to cast an early vote on Saturday can do so from 9 a.m. to noon. No identification will be necessary for those voting early, but a paper application will be required to be filled out before voting.
