With only two days left to vote early for local offices, the Davidson County Election Commission is seeing a slow but steady increase in residents casting their ballots.

As of 2 p.m. Tuesday, a total of 1,414 ballots had been cast since early voting began on April 14. Early voting will end on April 29 and voting at precincts will happen on May 4.

According to the election commission, local elections typically draw around 30,000 votes, or about 10 percent of all those registered in the county.

The most hotly contested election is the Juvenile Court Clerk race, in which incumbent Vic Lineweaver is trying to fend off several others in the Democratic primary.

Another closely watched race is the Democratic primary for Criminal Court Clerk, with incumbent David Torrence facing opposition from Metro Councilman Michael Craddock.

The Davidson County Election Commission Metro Office Building (next to Howard Office Building) located at 800 2nd Ave. South. Voting is open until 5:30 p.m.
