    “Campaigning has been normal,” poll worker Laura Rogers said. “There hasn’t been more candidates out than normal. I have no clue what has brought more voters in. It’s not a complaint. It’s really awesome but at the same time… wow!”

    If you are voting an absentee ballot, make sure you have it stamped by Tuesday for it to be valid.

    If you haven’t voted yet, you can cast your ballot Tuesday from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
