Presidential Preference Primary Early Begins Soon

Lebanon, TN –Early voting for the March 5th Republican and Democratic Presidential Preference Primary and Wilson County Party Primaries will soon begin, on February 14th, at all four Early Voting locations in Wilson County.

The last Presidential Preference Primary was in March of 2020 when Wilson County had a turnout of about 21,000 voters. As the population of Wilson County continues to grow, Early Voting becomes a more appealing option for voters to avoid the Election Day lines. On March 3rd, 2020 a tornado devastated large parts of Wilson County destroying property and disrupting power to many Election Day polls. Preparation and training by Wilson County Election Officials allowed Election Day voters the ability to cast their vote despite the challenges presented by the weather.  

“Early voting is perfect for voters eager to cast their vote and express their opinion in this primary. We encourage those eligible to get out and vote early to hopefully avoid long lines, weather delays or other circumstances that may arise on Election Day,” commented Tammy Smith, Wilson County Administrator of Elections.

Early Voting starts on February 14th and will run through February 27th. Voters may choose to cast their vote at any of the four Early Voting sites in Wilson County regardless of where they live in the county. On Election Day, voters that have not voted early, can vote at one of the 18 Election day Vote Centers. 

The four convenient Early Voting locations in Wilson County are the Election Commission Office at 230 East Gay Street in Lebanon; Mt. Juliet Community Center at 1075 Charlie Daniels Pkwy; Gladeville Community Center at 95 McCreary Road;  and Watertown Community Center at 8630 Sparta Pike. All locations are open from Monday through Friday 8:00am until 6:00pm and Saturday 8:00am until 1:00pm. Daily updates on the progress of Early Voting are posted on Election Commission’s website – 

“Take advantage of Early Voting- it’s the easiest way to make sure you can cast your ballot regardless of what life throws at you,” said Smith.
