This is your one-stop shop to ensure you have all the tools you'll need to vote on November 8th! To vote, you must have your required state issued photo ID.
Register to Vote
You must be registered to vote to make your voice heard on August 4th and November 8th. And now, it's easy. You can register to vote online.
July 5th-- Deadline to register to vote for the August 4th Primary Election.
October 11th-- Deadline to register to vote for the November 8th General Election.
It's important that you make sure that not only you are registered to vote, but that everyone in your household, your friends, your family, your neighbors, and your co-workers are registered to vote.
If you are a first-time voter, you can register in-person at your county election commission office or at the DMV to qualify for an absentee ballot. If you have already registered, but haven't voted in-person yet, you can take your state issued photo ID to your county election commission office to be certified.
You are eligible to Early Vote in Tennessee if you are:
- 60+ years old
- You will be outside of the county for all early voting days and on Election Day
- You are hospitalized, ill, or physically disabled
- You are the caretaker of someone hospitalized, ill, or physically disabled
- You or your spouse are a full-time student in an accredited college or university outside of the county
- You live in a nursing home
- You have jury duty
- You are a member of the military or are an overseas citizen
- You are on the permanent absentee voter list
- You are an Election Day poll official
First time voters have to vote in-person the first time or register to vote their county election commission office or the DMV.
Early voting allows voters the opportunity to vote without having to wait in Election Day voting lines. It's also a great fail-safe option in case an emergency arises on Election Day that prevents you from getting to the polls.
