Decisions that affect your healthcare, or your schools, or your business are made by the people we elect. So if you have opinions about those things, one of the most impactful ways to express them is with your vote.

You can register to vote if you will be at least 18 years old by November 3, a Tennessee resident, a U.S. citizen, and not currently incarcerated for a felony. If you have a past felony conviction, you will need to restore your voting rights before you can vote.

Every vote matters. In the past couple of decades more than a dozen races ended in a tie or were decided by a single vote, and many more were very close.

Nothing is more fundamental to our democracy than the right to vote, so apply to vote safely by mail or make your plans to vote early today.

Want to help make sure other Tennesseans know their options about voting safely this November? Volunteer with our campaign!
