Lines formed early at Sulphur Springs Public Library for the start of early voting for the Nov. 4 General Election. The poll opened at 7 a.m. and, just before noon, more than 100 early votes had been cast in an election that features only two contested local elections. The two local county offices at stake in the general election are county treasurer and Justice of the Peace Precinct One. In the race for Hopkins County Treasurer, Republican Jim Thompson opposes incumbent Democrat Treva Watson for the post. Democratic nominee Demetra Robinson and Republican Billy “BJ” Teer are seeking the Precinct One Justice of the Peace office. A number of other county offices on the ballot are unopposed in the general election. Early voting in trustee elections for four rural county school districts, Cumby, Miller Grove, North Hopkins and Sulphur Bluff school districts are being held in conjunction with county elections. In the Cumby ISD election, seven early ballots had been cast. Three votes were cast in the North Hopkins ISD election, one in the Miller Grove election and, by noon, no one had voted in the Sulphur Bluff school board election. Early voting will continue through Friday, Oct. 31 with voting hours this week from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. In the second week of early voting, on Tuesday and Thursday, Oct. 28 and Oct. 30, the poll will be open 12 hours each day, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Elections Administrator Debbie Shirley, Hopkins County Clerk, said there will be weekend voting next weekend with the voting box open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 25, and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Oct 26.
