Early vote totals in Coffee County outpace previous presidential primary

Early voting for the March 3 primary ended on Tuesday, and turnout in Coffee County was better this year than for the last presidential primary in 2016.

This year’s early voting in Coffee County, which ran Feb. 12 through Feb. 25, saw 3,517 total votes cast. Of those, 2,179 were cast at the Coffee County Election Commission office and 1,202 were cast in Tullahoma at the CD Stamps location. There were 136 total absentee voters. Of those 3,517 early voters, 2,561 voted in the Republican primary, while 956 voted in the Democratic primary.

Voters in both primaries are choosing candidates for the presidential race – with the majority of those candidates being in the Democratic primary as President Donald Trump is the presumed candidate on the Republican ticket. Locally, voters in the Republican primary are choosing one of four candidates to be Coffee County General Sessions Judge. There are no judge candidates on the Democratic ticket.
