The Logan County Board of Elections has received an average of about 200 voters per day since early voting commenced Oct. 2.

“We had 198 people cast ballots (Sunday,)” director Diana Gamble said. “I thought because it was Sunday, maybe it would be slow, but it was just as busy as it has been.”

Of the 6,527 votes cast through Sunday, 2,339 were from voters who identified as Republicans and 632 were cast from Democrats. Most of the ballots — 3,550 — were from “non-partisans.” Six early votes were cast from self-identified Libertarians.
