Voters were standing in line as early as 6 a.m. for polls opening at 7 a.m. Tuesday morning in the nation's historic 2008 Presidential Election.

While Dawson County's local elections were decided during the July 15 Primaries, poll workers said the flow of voters remained steady through the morning, and expected a rush as voters returned home from work.

  

Chairperson of Dawson County Elections and Registration Glenda Ferguson reported more than 51 percent, or 6,775 of registered voters in Dawson County cast ballots prior to Election Day.

  

Officials estimated at least 85 percent of Dawson County's registered voters would vote before the polls close at 7 p.m.

"At first I predicted 83 percent, but I'm going to take it up a bit," Ferguson said.

   

With two hours left before the polls closed, Ferguson said poll workers had seen very few problems and voters were still lining up to cast their votes.
