Voters looking to avoid the lines on Election Day next Tuesday have one more shot in Grayson County. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday.


Grayson County Elections Administrator Deana Patterson said the last day of early voting generally sees a strong turnout. She said she likes to remind voters that they can cast ballots at any of the vote centers in the county. Those are:


Grayson County Election Administration, 115 W. Houston in Sherman; Grayson County Sub-Courthouse, 101 W. Woodard in Denison; Pottsboro ISD Administration Building, 105 Cardinal Lane in Pottsboro; Whitesboro City Hall, 111 W. Main in Whitesboro; and Grayson College, 1455 W. Van Alstyne Pkwy. in Van Alstyne.


As of close of business on Wednesday, 4,838 people had cast early ballots in this year’s primary. Patterson said the number of people who voted the same period in 2018 were 3,655 with a total of 13,951 casting ballots overall in that primary. In 2016, she said, early voting through the final Wednesday of the period was 5,716 and total voting overall for that primary was 23,943.


“Looks like we are set to hit somewhere in between,” Patterson predicted.
