One week remains for early voting, 224,000+ cast ballots to date
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WMOT) -- The state elections coordinator says more than 224,000 Tennesseans have already cast their general election ballots in early voting.
Early voting for the November 4 election ends on October 31.
Rutherford County elections administrator Alan Farley reminds voters that they must present state or federal photo ID prior to being allowed to place a vote.
However, should you forget that ID, Farley explains that you can fill out a provisional ballot.
“So at that point you would have 48 hours to come back to the Election Commission office and present your photo ID that says you are who you say you are and at that point in time your ballot will be cast.”
Farley says this year’s ballot is lengthy, with candidates for federal, state and local offices, along with a number of referendum issues. He suggests voters review the sample ballot available on your county election commission’s website before heading to the polls.
