Mercer County Clerk Phyllis Bewley reported that early voting for the April 5 consolidated election has been pretty light.

A total of 44 people in Mercer County had taken advantage of the early voting as of 3 p.m. March 30.

This being the fact despite several contentious races in several cities in the county as well as the area school boards, a tax for school facility purposes and a $2,800,000 library bond.
