Tuesday, July 7th is the last day to register to vote, in order to vote in the August 6th election

If you are not registered to vote, Tuesday, July 7th is the last day to do so, in order to vote in the August 6th election to vote for the next mayor, vice mayor, council members at-large, district council members and three proposed charter amendments.

While there are several places where one my pick up voter registration forms, since Tuesday is the last day to register, there is not time to register by mail. To register in person, go to the Davidson County Election Commission office at one of these two locations:

  • Election Commission Main Office: 1417 Murfreesboro Pike, Nashville, TN 37217.
  • Satellite Election Commission Office in the Howard School office complex,  800 2nd Avenue South,  4th Floor,  Nashville, TN 37210
The hours of operation for these facilities is 8:00am to 4:30pm.

Be sure and bring identification with you. Only U.S. citizens may register. Convicted felons may not register. Occasionally people not eligible to register get registered at the Division of Motor Vehicles when applying for or renewing auto tags or drivers license.  Even if someone mistakenly registered a person to vote, it is still a felony for that person to cast a vote if not eligible to vote.

If you were once registered to vote and have not voted in a while, it may be possible that your voter registration has been purged. To check the status of your voter registration, follow this link.

All voters must  present a Tennessee or federal ID containing the voter’s name and photograph when voting at the polls, whether voting early or on Election Day.
