In a country deeply divided on healthcare, immigration and gun control, early voting begins Wednesday in Tennessee as we work toward picking our next U.S. President.
Early voting in the Presidential Preference Primary runs from Wednesday, Feb. 12 until Tuesday, Feb. 25. Election Day is Tuesday, March 3.
It’s not a large ballot. Those voting in the Republican primary can decide if they want to give President Donald Trump a chance at re-election.
Those voting in the Democratic primary can pick the candidate they want to advance to the general election to likely face President Trump for the highest office in America.
The deadline has already passed to register to vote in this election. However, two more elections remain in 2020 in August and in November and voters still have time to register for those.
In McMinnville, early voting is held at Warren County Administrative Offices on Locust Street. Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday thru Friday, and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday.
There will be no early voting on Presidents Day on Monday, Feb. 17.
State law requires polling locations and the area within a 100-foot boundary surrounding each entrance to remain campaign-free zones.
Tennesseans voting early or on Election Day should remember to bring valid photo ID with them to the polls. A driver license or photo ID issued by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, by Tennessee state government, or by the federal government are acceptable even if they are expired. College student IDs are not acceptable.
