Tips for voting on Election Day in Tennessee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee’s Secretary of State Tre Hargett is sharing important tips for Election Day.

In a news release, the Secretary of State’s Office says:

  • Going to the polls mid-morning or mid-afternoon can help avoid long lines, as early morning, noon and 5 p.m. are peak times.
  • Frail, physically disabled or visibly pregnant voters should tell poll workers if they cannot stand in line, as the law allows them to go through the line faster.
  • Bring valid photo ID in the form of a Tennessee driver license, or photo ID issued by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, Tennessee state government or federal government.
  • Wear a mask and stay 6-feet apart in order to maintain social distancing.

The release says that polls across the state can open at different times. However, all polls in Tennessee will close at 7 p.m.
