Early voting begins across Tennessee

In addition to the state and federal elections, Adamsville, Crump and Savannah are holding city elections on Nov. 6.
Early voting starts today, Oct. 17 and runs through Nov. 1. Citizens in Hardin County can vote early at the Hardin County Election Commission office on the lower level of the county courthouse on Main Street in Savannah.
“Tennesseans broke August early voting records as they selected nominees and elected county officials, and I know interest remains high as voters prepare to select leaders across all levels of government on the November ballot,” said Secretary of State Tre Hargett. “Early voting offers voters more opportunities to find a convenient time to cast their ballots.”
Early voting hours at the Hardin County Election Commission office are Monday-Wednesday 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m.; Thursday 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; and Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon.
In Savannah, there are two City Commission seats on the ballot. Steven Blake White, a former member of the commission, faces incumbents Kent Collier and Wes Wilkerson.
In a Crump race absent an incumbent, Jerry Key and Ricky Tuberville are battling for city mayor. With two Crump alderman seats on the ballot, the candidates are incumbent Glenn R. Miller and Wendy R. Presley.
In Adamsville, there are two City Commission seats on the ballot. The candidates, both incumbents, are Jackie Hamm and Lee Winters.
State and federal races to be decided in the election are Tennessee governor, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives (District 7) and Tennessee House of Representatives (District 71).
Tennesseans voting early or on Election Day should remember to bring valid photo identification with them to the polls. A driver’s license or photo ID issued by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security as well as photo IDs issued by Tennessee state government or the federal government are acceptable even if they are expired. College student IDs are not acceptable.
