In Henderson, one of the polling places is at the Chase Fulcher Archery Training Center on Garden Mile Road. This location will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Poll workers say the turnout has been slower than normal.

There are no requirements to be able to vote early. All you need is to be registered and bring your identification with you.

Some early voters say it’s important to exercise your right to vote.

“I think it’s obvious, it’s our right and our duty,” early voter Jica Crafton said. “It maintains what’s going on in our state and country.”

There will be about six locations to cast votes in Henderson on Primary Day.
