October 5 is the Voter Registration Deadline

One of the most important things a state employee can do to protect their job and benefits is to vote for candidates who support state employees. But you have to be registered to vote first!

Tennessee now has an online voter registration system, making it easier than ever for Tennesseans to register to vote.

To register to vote, type this link into your web browser:

The general requirements to vote in TN:

• You must be a U.S. Citizen

• You must be a resident of Tennessee

• You must be at least 18 years old on/or before the next election

• You must not have been convicted of a felony, or if you have, your voting rights must have been restored

It is important to remember, an online application for voter registration must be submitted at least 30-days before an election, or a printed voter registration application must be postmarked or hand-delivered to the proper county election commission office at least 30 days before an election.
