My wife and I think early voting is marvelous. Fast, easy, and lots of convenient locations and hours.
I encourage everyone take advantage of this great service and save yourself time and aggrevation standing in long lines on election day.
In most instances you can be in and out in well under 30 minutes.
This year we're electing several county commissioners, school board members, a new sheriff, and several other important offices in Knox County.
