Polls opened in Shelby County at 7 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 6, and close at 7 p.m. The ballot is a mix of state and federal primary and local races for a clerk's position and five school board seats. Early voter turnout was almost as high as the total turnout in the same election cycle four years ago but low through the morning rush hour.
