NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The polls are opening across Tennessee. Voters will cast ballots in the presidential race, for one U.S. Senate seat, nine U.S. House contests, the entire state House and half of the state Senate.

More than 1.4 million Tennessee voters cast ballots during the early voting period.

A state or federally issued photo ID is required to vote. This is the first year for the requirement, which also applied in the March presidential primary and the August state primary.

Weather should not be a serious factor in voting. Highs in the 50s are predicted statewide. There could be some afternoon showers in Nashville and Chattanooga has a 50% rain chance, but heavier rain isn't expected until late in the day and overnight.
