Early voting kicked off in the Natural State on Monday, and in Madison County folks like Christina Alton was the first in line.
"We wanted to beat the crowd," she said.
"For me, because I'm seven months pregnant, anything you can get done early and get it out of the way is great," said Alton. "There were several issues on the ballot we were interested in."
Issues like should Madison County go wet or stay dry.
Madison County clerk Faron Ledbetter said because of the number of hot topics on the ballot, polling places may see record numbers this year.
"We've had a lot of people who are registerted to vote who said that's what they're interested in is that wet dry issue. It's the first time it's been on the ballot in 65 years, so I think that people will want to have their voices be hear on that issue as well as other issues," said Ledbetter.
Because of the busty ballot, Ledbetter said the time before November 6th is more important than ever.
"Early voting gets more popular every year, every election. We feel like we could vote as many as 1500 just in the early voting, which would be roughly 20%," he said.
Both Christina and Faron agree, early voting is just one more way to make sure your voice is heard.
