JACKSON, Tenn. — “Tomorrow, on Thursday, is our last day to vote early,” said Kim Buckley, Madison County Administrator of Elections.
And on Wednesday, many voters in the City of Jackson made a mad dash to the polls.

On Tuesday, the City of Jackson will elect either Scott Conger or Dr. Jerry Woods to be the Hub City’s next mayor.
“I want to make sure my voice is heard,” Spurgeon said.
“It’s a person’s right, you know. We got lots of our forefathers that gave their life for voting, and we think everybody who can vote should vote,” voter Allen Boyd said.
“Y’all get out and vote. Do what your heart feels like,” vpter Brenda Gray said.
