Over 1,300 cast early ballots Sat.

As of 4:30 p.m. Saturday, the first day of early voting, 1,310 people had cast their ballots, Assistant Elections Supervisor Joyce Griffin said in a 4:35 p.m. email.

That surpassed previous highs, and voters were welcome until 7 p.m. Early voting is offered 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day through Nov. 3.

The last presidential election year, 2008, the first day of early voting drew 999, according to Griffin.

In the 2010 election, 222 voted on the first day early voting was offered.

Presidential election years in general draw a larger turnout.
