SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Early voting in Sevierville has been really popular the past two days.
Long lines circled the building at Sevier County Election Commission early Thursday. Early voting started Wednesday.
Folks going through the line to early vote say it’s taking about 45 minutes to an hour to get through. They say it’s worth the wait and would do it again.
“Well, you either vote your convictions or you let someone else make your choices for you. I’m going to make my own choice as long as we can,” said Mary Stinnett, who made the short drive from Pigeon Forge.
In Sevier County, there are two locations to vote early.
One at the Election Commission in Sevierville, the other a the Seymour Masonic Lodge.
Both are open weekdays 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
