Early voting in the Nov. 6 general election continues to draw a large turnout, with 20,850 votes being cast through Tuesday in Wichita County.
At press time on Wednesday, 1,825 people had marked their ballots at the Iowa Park location. Today and tomorrow votes may be cast locally at the Wichita County Tax Office Substation, 400 N. Wall, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Many people may be voting a straight party ticket this year. When you vote, even if you choose the straight party one button approach, you still have options in your local elections.
A voter can move down the ballot and vote for a candidate in any race not matter what party and that vote will count. The rest of the ballot will remain the straight party vote.
This gives voters a quick and easy way to vote for the best candidate in the local elections, where voters have the opportunity to know the candidates and vote for the performance of the individual.
