Early voting underway in East Tennessee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Voters began casting their ballots for the August 2 state primary and county general elections as soon as Friday.

“The flexibility of early voting gives Tennesseans one less reason not to exercise their right to vote,” said Secretary of State Tre Hargett. “Early voting has proven to be quite popular, and I am hopeful that voters will continue to take advantage of the opportunity.”

The Secretary of State's office is reminding voters that whether they vote early or on election they will need photo identification when voting in person.

Examples of acceptable forms of ID, whether current or expired, include driver licenses, U.S. passports, Department of Safety photo ID cards, U.S. military photo IDs and other state or federal government photo ID cards. College student IDs are not acceptable.
