In Fayette County, WV more than 4,000 people voted early in the general election. This set a record in the County according to County Clerk, Kelvin Holliday. He said that in recent years voters mostly used paper ballots, which can cause a delay in counting the votes.
“I think it’s tremendous I’ve seen a lot more younger people this time we’ve had three high schools bring their senior class members to vote in Fayette county,” said Holliday. “I’m very optimistic that we’re going to go over 50 percent total “
Although all early voting was done on machines, just for Election Day more than 39 precincts did have the option of using paper ballot.
