STANFORD — Early voting has begun in Stanford's special election to allow alcohol sales, but so far, not many folks appear thirsty to cast a ballot.
As of Thursday, only early eight votes had been tallied and no one had asked for an absentee ballot for the Oct. 6 election, said Lincoln County Clerk Sonny Spoonamore.
"I haven't had the first request for an absentee ballot yet," Spoonamore said. "I kind of figured I'd have some by now."
A machine for early voting was set up Monday in the clerk's office in the basement of the Lincoln County Courthouse. Spoonamore was busy Thursday posting official notices about the election in prominent locations in the three city precincts eligible to vote in the election.
