Erath County Clerk Gwinda Jones said ongoing weather and electricity problems are forcing her office to shut down early voting for the day.

Early voting will resume at 8 a.m. Friday at the Erath County Courthouse as long as no further problems arise. Polls will also be open from noon-4 p.m. on Sunday.

Jones said 302 voters cast early ballots on Tuesday while Wednesday’s turnout was much slower, with only 79 voting.

“The weather was terrible,” she said. “We had tree limbs falling all over the place. We are hoping for a better day (On Friday).”
