NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – More than 220,000 Tennesseans have voted early or absentee by mail for the Aug. 2 election.

The secretary of state's office said Thursday it is a record for a comparable election. Through Wednesday, 223,281 had voted early or absentee.

In August 2008, 206,174 voted during the entire early voting period.

Early voting continues through Saturday. Voters need a state or federally issued photo ID to cast ballots.
