Early Voting turnout over 1,500; Primary is May 17

Early voting ended Saturday, May 14, 2022, at 3 pm. A total of 1,578 voters cast ballots during the Early Voting period. Voters who have not voted will need to go to their assigned precinct polling place on election day, Tuesday, May 17. Polls will be open Tuesday from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm.
“A big thank you to all our early voting workers,” said Patrick Wike, Alexander County Board of Elections Director. “These folks endured long hours to assist voters and provide a positive voting experience. We would also like to thank the Alexander Senior Center for allowing their facility to serve as an early voting site, which provided 159 cumulative hours of voting opportunity.”
On Election Day, Alexander County will have 10 Election Day precinct polling places open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Historically, polling places tend to be busiest before and after normal business hours.
