Hello Tennessee, if you want to vote in  the 2022 midterm elections there are three   steps you need to take: register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   Let's start with getting registered.

If you have  a Tennessee driver’s license, you can register   online. If not, you’ll need to print out an  application form and mail it in.

Links to both   the online and printable registration forms are  at But either way you   register, you have to do it by October 11th. Then it’s time to make your plan for   how you’re going to vote.

If you’re going to be out of town,   can’t get to the polls because you’re ill  or disabled, or maybe you want to vote in   Tennessee but you go to college somewhere  else, then you can vote absentee.   To do that, you need to fill out a form to  request your ballot from your County Election   Commission’s office by November 1st. But the  sooner you do it the better, so you have time   for them to get your application, mail you a  ballot, and for you to mail it back so that it   gets to them no later than November 8th. Any Tennessee voter can vote early in person   though, from October 19th through November 3rd  at the County Election Commission in your county,   or any satellite locations they  set up.

You can find all those   locations and their hours at this link. Or you can vote on election day on November 8th.   You can look up where you’ll vote at that same  link, and polls close at 8pm if you live in the   Eastern time zone and 7pm if you live in Central  time, but they open at different times depending   on your county, so make sure you use that link to  check the voting hours for where you live.   You’ll also need to bring a photo ID with  you. A Tennessee drivers license, state ID,   passport, or military ID all work, but if  you don’t have one of those, you can get   a free photo ID at a Driver Service Center.

So once you have your plan for how you’re going to   vote, where you need to go, what time you’re going  to go vote, and what ID you’re going to bring,   you just need to follow the plan, and  go vote on or before November 8th.   If you want to know everything that’s on your  ballot ahead of time, you can find a sample ballot   at so you have time  to research candidates and make your decisions.   You don’t have to vote for everything on your  ballot for that ballot to count, but this is your   best chance to choose who gets to make decisions  about your life: all the way from Congress to   your city council or school board. There are links for everything you need to   register, vote early, find your polling  place, and locate your sample ballot at Thank you for voting!
