Voters Are Encouraged To Double Check Registration
September 2013 Is National Voter Registration Month in Tennessee
The Tennessee Secretary of State and the Madison County Election Commission encourage people to make sure your current registration is accurate.
"It is important for individuals to register to vote, but it is equally important for voters to verify that their registrations are up to date," added Madison County Administrator of Elections Kim Buckley. "If you have moved, now is a great time to update your address."
In a concerted effort to remind eligible voters to register or update their voting information before deadlines pass, the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) has also declared September 24 as National Voter Registration Day. The goal is to encourage voter participation and increase awareness of state requirements and deadlines for voting.
"The right to vote should never be taken for granted," said Secretary Hargett, who is also president of NASS. "I encourage all eligible U.S. citizens to register if they haven't already."
