The mud may have been flowing in one of the races in Floyd County in this election day but there was mud too to contend with for vehicles to traverse the exit of the parking lot at Little River polling place at Rescue Station No. 1.
It took some wooden pallets to cover the mud and provide a way out after voting.
And lots of people were voting. Most precincts in the county were over 400 voters before noon on a foggy day with contested races for county sheriff, two supervisor districts and two school board races.
Polls remain open until 7 p.m. Tuesday and then the counting begins.
