With two days left until early voting, Lamar County Elections Supervisor Tricia Johnson said Wednesday afternoon that voter turnout could be higher than previously expected for the upcoming Nov. 8 general election on Tuesday.

“So far we’ve had over 6,000 voters and we’ve gotten 500 ballots in the mail,” Johnson said, adding that she expects Friday, the last day of early voting, to be another big day of turnout. “So far it’s a good turnout for the midterms.”
