for advance voting
Advance voting in Douglas County is up nearly 74 percent from the same period during the primary election, Douglas County Clerk Patty Jaimes reported Friday.
In the above photo, Linda Dick, election clerk, ran the advance voting room in a past election at the Douglas County Courthouse.
As of Friday afternoon, Jaimes said 685 people had taken advantage of advance voting for the general election. That number is compared to 394 people at the same time in this year's primary election.
Jaimes said the advance voting totals means the there probably will be a higher voter turnout for Tuesday's election. She said not as many voters went to the polls in February because of the poor weather.
Additional advance voting hours are 10 a.m. to noon today at the county courthouse, 1100 Mass. Advance voting ends at noon Monday at the courthouse.
On Election Day, polls will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
