TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Polls are seeing a high absentee voting turnout with the run-off election between Mike Espy and Cindy Hyde-Smith only days away.
The Lee County Circuit Clerk's office held voting until noon Saturday with about 250 voters turning out.
Officials say this is particularly high for absentee voting for a run-off election.
“This last election we had some precincts with about 70% voter turnout, which is amazing for this type of election," said Lee County Circuit Clerk Camille Roberts Delaney. "Normally, we don’t see numbers that high, unless it is presidential. So, I think we’re gonna vote high again in the run-off.”
The run-off election will be held November 27th.
