Deadline to register to vote in August election arrives first week of July

The deadline to register to vote in the Aug. 4 state and federal primary and state and county general election is Tuesday, July 5.
“Going into this 4th of July holiday, I can’t think of a more patriotic thing to do than to register to vote,” said Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett. “With our convenient online voter registration system, it’s never been easier or safer for Tennesseans to register to vote or update their registration.”
Any U.S. citizen with a driver’s license or a photo ID issued by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security can register online from any computer or mobile device at GoVoteTN.gov.
Voters can also download a paper voter registration application at GoVoteTN.gov. Completed paper voter registration applications must be mailed to your local county election commission office or submitted in person. Mailed voter registrations must be postmarked by July 5.
Early voting for the Aug. 4 election starts Friday, July 15, and runs Monday to Saturday until Saturday, July 30.
The deadline to request an absentee by-mail ballot is Thursday, July 28. However, eligible voters who will be voting absentee by-mail should request the ballot now.
