Staff Writer

With Election Day drawing near, residents of Howard County will get their last chance today to cast their votes early for the election.
Polls today will be open from 7 a.m to 7 p.m at the Howard County Courthouse. The total votes from early voting have been coming in slowly so far with only 53 by the end of Monday.
“It’s not really a highly contested race,” said Jodi Duck, election administrator. “We just cannot get the voter turnout that we wanted.”
Election Day is Saturday, May 6 with polls open from 7 a.m to 7 p.m. Voting will be held for the Big Spring race at the East Room of the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum located on the Howard College campus, 1001 Birdwell Lane.
