With so much at stake in this year’s election, Phyllis Steward wasn’t about to miss out on voting, even though she won’t be in Seymour come Election Day.
“We’re going to be in Arizona then, but we still wanted to make sure we voted,” she said after turning in her ballot at Jackson Superior Court I in Seymour on Monday morning.
“I think a lot of people will vote because of the presidential race, especially senior citizens because of Medicare and Social Security,” Steward added.
She and a steady stream of other Jackson County residents made their way to the early voting site, which opened Monday. Just two hours in, about 30 people had cast ballots, Jackson County Clerk Amanda Lowery said.
“It’s been busy and good,” Lowery said of voter traffic. “We had four people waiting at the doors to get in to vote.”
