Saturday’s early voting in Marshall County was very heavy. 818 registered voters went to the three voting sites in Marshall County and voted between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. The Marshall County Court House had the largest number of voters with 304. The Culver School Administration building had the next highest turnout with 259 voters and the Pines in Bremen was right behind them with 255 voters.
Voters at the Court House stood in a line that went from the north doors west to the corner of Center and Madison Streets. The line then turned south and went all the way to Michigan Street. A caller on Monday’s “What’s Your Opinion Show” said she stood in line for 3 hours in Bremen to vote on Saturday.
Prior to Saturday’s voter turnout the county already had 3,782 voters take advantage of early voting. With those voters on Saturday the total of early voting was 4,600.
Looking at the voter details from four years ago showed a total of 5,741 absentee voters. That number not only included those who voted early but voters who mailed in their ballots and those who had the travel board vote them ahead of Election Day.
Registered voters continue to have the opportunity to vote early. You can vote in the Marshall County Court House from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. this week and on Monday, November 2nd until noon. Early voting will be available again this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Court House, the Pines in Bremen and the Culver School Administration Building.
