NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) - Tennessee’s August elections are weeks away and registration to vote closed on July 5.

Starting on Friday through July 30, voters can head to their polling locations and mark their selections for the state primary and county elections on August 4.

Voters were urged to visit their local county offices to register to vote in early July to make sure they were eligible for next month’s elections.

“With primary and general races and judicial retention questions on this ballot, Tennesseans should be aware that it may take additional time to vote,” said Secretary of State Tre Hargett. “I encourage voters to take advantage of our generous early voting period to make your voice heard.”

The August election usually gets overlooked but state officials are encouraging voters to turn out because the August elections have the greatest impact on people’s lives.

Tennessee voters need to bring valid photo identification to the polls. A driver’s license or photo ID issued by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, Tennessee state government or the federal government is acceptable even if it’s expired. A student ID or out-of-state driver’s license is not acceptable.
