Erath County residents appear to be showing the same sense of urgency as other voters across the country.

With Election Day less than two weeks away, the number of local registered voters that have already gone to the polls has surpassed the total number of voters in 2018, according to Erath County Clerk Gwinda Jones.

Jones told Beneath the Surface News that as of Wednesday morning, 7,593 people have already turned out for early voting.

That translates to roughly 31% of the 23,952 registered voters in Erath County.
