By , Columbian staff writer

Clark County’s ballot returns continue to climb as voters head into the final weekend before the Nov. 3 election, hitting 61.61 percent as of Friday morning.

According to daily totals from the Clark County Elections Office, 199,560 people have cast their ballots, with five more days to go. The total number of registered voters also continues to rise — 323,918 Clark County residents are now registered to vote, an increase of about 20,000 people since the August primary election.

The historic early turnout numbers remain on track for a record-breaking general election. Clark County Auditor Greg Kimsey predicts that turnout will hit 90 percent, easily surpassing the previous record of 85 percent in 2008.

By this point in 2008, with five days to go until the general election, 106,053 people had voted, or about 49 percent.

It’s not too late to register in person. Visit the county elections office, located at 1408 Franklin St. in Vancouver, up until 8 p.m. on Election Day.
