Early voting in the special district 14 state senate primary race, the Rutherford County Election Commission has decided to close the poles for Friday, due to the icing conditions.

Administrator Alan Farley said, "After consulting with the Members of the Rutherford County Election Commission, the Rutherford County Emergency Management Agency and the state of TN Coordinator of Elections, Early Voting in the 14th State Senate Special Election will be closing early at 12:15 pm on Friday January 12, 2018. County offices closed at Noon."

Voting in this special election is very important but with we have received word from Rutherford County Emergency Management that our roads are becoming extremely hazardous and therefore in the best interest of the voters and poll officials we do not want to risk bodily harm.

Voters still have 6 days to cast their vote early. The last week of early voting will be conducted next week starting Tuesday, January 16 until Saturday, the 20th. Government offices will be closed this coming Monday, since it is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Farley commented, "Our hopes are that Early Voting will be open on Saturday, January 13th from 8am until Noon. This is dependent on the condition of area roads. A decision to close will be made early Saturday morning."
