As of noon on Tuesday, 94 Commerce voters had taken advantage of early voting opportunities for the Nov. 8 city election.
Early voting for the Nov. 8 city elections began on Oct. 18 and will continue through Nov. 4 at City Hall.
Voters may cast their ballots between 8:30 and 4:30 on weekdays.
While early voting takes place at City Hall, all of the voting on Nov. 8 will take place at the J. Nolan Spear Public Safety Complex on South Elm Street.
“The rest of this week and next week, especially the last two days will be very busy,” predicted city clerk Shirley Willis, who is also the election superintendent. “Two years ago we had 171 votes cast on the final day.”
Only three races are contested. Clark Hill, Tommy Stephenson and Donald Wilson are running for mayor, Mark Fitzpatrick, incumbent, and Paul Vickery are running for the Ward 3 council seat, and Chris Bulls and Steve Perry are running for the Ward 4 council seat.
In addition, incumbent Johnny Eubanks is running unopposed for the Ward 5 council seat, and school board incumbents Bill Davis (District 3), Rodney Gary (District 4) and Paul Sergent (District 5) are all unopposed.
