Early voting started today and runs through Saturday, April 6TH. Adams County Clerk Georgia Volm says she is hoping for at least a 35 percent voter turnout, but expects that number to be higher for the city of Quincy due to the mayoral race.
Volm says there are many advantages to early voting.
"If the weather is bad on Election Day and you've already voted, you know your vote has already been placed. And it gives those busy individuals out in the county or in the city the opportunity to stop by when they have the moment to stop by and vote early. So it gives everybody a better chance to make sure their vote gets counted," said Volm.
If you plan to vote early you'll need to bring a government issued photo I. D. You can vote Monday through Friday 8:30am to 4:30pm at the clerk's office in Quincy.
