Election Day arrives in Tennessee


Tennessee election officials are expecting high turnout as voters line up to cast ballots for governor, the U.S. Senate and House on Tuesday.

The top race in Tennessee is between Republican U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn and Democrat Phil Bredesen for Tennessee’s open U.S. Senate seat.

Meanwhile, Republican businessman Bill Lee and former Nashville Mayor Karl Dean are vying to succeed term-limited Republican Gov. Bill Haslam.

Voters can download the GoVoteTN app to view specific information about their polling locations, hours and sample ballots.

Tennessee requires voters to bring valid photo identification with them to the polls, such as a photo ID issued by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security or the federal government.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with the busiest hours early in the morning and at the end of the day. 

Make sure you review the sample ballot. Click here for the Nashville ballot. 

Don’t forget to bring your photo ID. It’s required to have a current federal or Tennessee state government-issued photo ID. 

Make sure you know your voting location. You must vote at your designated election day polling place.
