Officials are expecting more Grant County voters to cast ballots early at the Grant County Courthouse this year compared to the 2016 general election, with precautions in place to keep the voting process safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Elections Deputy Nancy Bryant said there has been “amazing turnout” for early in-person voting so far, with steady traffic coming during the courthouse hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The 1,549 people who voted early from Oct. 6-9 is more than double the 765 people who voted early the first four days of early voting in the 2016 general election.
