MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  Early voting for the November 4 mid-term General Election begins Wednesday morning and a mid-state elections administrator says it’s an unusually full ballot.

Alan Farley is the Administrator of Elections for Rutherford County. Farley says the ballot is lengthy and also includes some complex issues. He says voting for a long list of state and federal candidates is just the beginning.

“We also have local municipal elections, a referendum with wine in groceries in Murfreesboro and Smyrna, and we also have four constitutional amendments. So I do encourage everyone to read over that and study that.”

You can find a full list of candidates and a sample ballot on your local election commission’s website. You’ll also find a list of early voting locations in your area.

Farley also reminds voters that Tennessee does require photo ID to cast a ballot. Federal and military photo ID, or a state driver’s license with photo can be used.
