Early Voting Ends Saturday

NASHVILLE, Tenn. –  Saturday, July 30, is the last day for Tennesseans to cast their ballot early in the Aug. 4 State and Federal Primary & State and County General Election. Election Day is Thursday, Aug 4.

"There is a long ballot for the August election, and voters should be aware that casting their ballot may take additional time," said Secretary of State Tre Hargett. "Tennesseans will likely see shorter wait times during early voting. That's why I'm encouraging Tennesseans to take advantage of the convenience of early voting to make their voice heard."

Voters can find early voting and Election Day voting times, polling locations, view and mark sample ballots and more with the GoVoteTN app or online at GoVoteTN.gov. Download the GoVoteTN app for free in the App Store or Google Play. 

Tennesseans voting early or on Election Day need to bring valid photo identification to the polls. A driver's license or photo ID issued by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, Tennessee state government or the federal government is acceptable even if it's expired.
