Absentee voting brisk for election

Nearly 600 voters had cast absentee ballots in the Nov. 8 general election by Tuesday in the Neshoba County Circuit Clerk’s Office and that number was expected to climb much higher by Saturday.

Monday alone, 53 people voted absentee, Deputy Circuit Clerk Jennifer Glass said.

She expects that number to reach or surpass the 927 who voted absentee in the 2012 general election when Barrack Obama and Mitt Romney were on the ballot for president.
