There were no lines at Bartlett Baptist Church around 11 a.m. Tuesday even as the weather warmed above 60 degrees.

The lack of voters didn’t deter the candidates and their volunteers from showing up just in case voters turn out later in the day.

Volunteers for U.S. Rep David Kustoff, R-Germantown, and state house Democratic candidate Gabby Salinas were at the Bartlett church on Kirby Whitten Parkway.

Salinas’ opponent Republican John Gillespie was also at the church. He said there was little activity since he arrived to the site this morning.

Incumbent Bartlett Alderwoman Paula Sedgwick, who is running against Kevin Quinn in the only contested race for the suburb’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen, also made a stop at the Bartlett Baptist Church. There were also volunteers for her opponent Kevin Quinn at the polling location.
