NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  Tennessee’s 2020 Primary and General Elections are set for this Thursday, but many of the state’s voters have already cast their ballots.

Thursday’s voting includes state and federal primaries, along with state and county general elections.

The number of voters taking advantage of early and absentee voting statewide is twice what was seen in 2016, the last presidential election year.

More than 532,000 Tennesseans have already cast ballots. That’s roughly 21 percent of the total number of people who voted in the November, 2016, presidential election.

Metro Davidson County leads the increase with the number of early and absentee ballots cast 250 percent above 2016 levels. Williamson and Wilson counties have also reported voting levels more than twice the 2016 turnout.

If you’re still holding an absentee ballot, remember it has to be in your county election office by no later than Thursday.

Also remember that you’ll need to take along a state or federal photo ID if you plan to vote in person on Thursday.

For your safety and the safety of others, wear a mask, take along hand some sanitizer and your own pen to sign documents.
