Tennessee early voters break previous record; High voter turnout expected Super Tuesday

Polls in Tennessee are open from 8am-8pm Super Tuesday.

BLOUNTVILLE, TN (WJHL) – Early voting numbers in Tennessee have already smashed records in previous primaries and polling places on Super Tuesday will likely be packed.

Some political experts say the massive interest in the presidential primary indicates voters are fed up with Washington and want a change.

Election captain and local polling place volunteers are ready for huge crowds.

Nearly 400,000 Tennesseans voted early, breaking a record from eight years ago. That indicates a 17% increase in Tennessee. Early voting counts for about 25-30% of the overall vote.

Turnout on Super Tuesday could approach numbers typically seen in the general, presidential election.
