Early voting closes
Early voting in the Nov. 8 general election closed as of 6 p.m. yesterday.
About 12 percent of the 26,233 registered voters in Chesterfield County, or 3,110 voters, have cast their ballots.
That number does not include the 333 absentee ballots that were mailed out by Voter Registration and Elections Office with 300 of those ballots received to date. However, those ballots will not be opened until election day.
The deadline for the county election board to open and tally most of those ballots is 7 p.m. Nov. 8. Absentee ballots received from military personnel, in addition to civilians working overseas, will be accepted through 5 p.m. Nov. 10.
