SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. (WMOT) -- Tennesseans have one week to register to vote in the upcoming presidential election. Registration closes on Monday, Oct. 8.
Voters should keep in mind that Monday is Columbus Day, a national holiday, so post offices will not be open that day. Anyone planning to mail in a registration will need to have it postmarked by no later than Saturday, October 6.
Voters also need to remember that Tennessee has a new voter photo ID requirement. Bedford County Election’s Coordinator Summer Leverette explains.
