ELIZABETHTON — For the first time, the Carter County Election Commission will be providing live results updates through its website as the precincts begin reporting in on Nov. 6.

“This is something we have wanted to do for a long time,” Carter County Administrator of Elections Tracy Harris said. “We are pleased we are now able to offer this service to our citizens this year.”

Those who are interested in following the results in Carter County can visit the Election Commission’s website at www.cartercountytn.gov/election-office and click on the link for “Live Election Results.” Election officials will be entering results as the precinct totals are available and the web page will update automatically every few minutes.

Each of the major races will be tracked and website visitors can click through the different tabs on the results page to track the races they are interested in.

Interest in the midterm elections has been high, according to Harris, with Carter County seeing a record number of residents participating in early voting. When the early voting polls closed on Nov. 1, a total of 9,722 Carter Countians had cast their ballots. That number is more than double the early voting turnout for the midterm elections in 2014 when 4,196 cast their ballots early.
