Early Voting Begins on Friday, July 18

Early voting begins tomorrow in Shelby County in anticipation of August 7.

Party primary races include US Senate, US House Districts 7, 8, and 9, and Tennessee Senate and House seats. Some of the Primary races are likely to determine the outcome of the November general election (e.g., US Senate races, US House Districts 7 & 9 and many of the other state senate and house races). Shelby County will also be voting for a Criminal Court Judge, Assessor, Trustee, County School Board members, and whether to retain State Appeal and Supreme Court Judges.

There are also important ballot initiatives (see 360, 361 A & B) to amend the Shelby County charter that will affect the number of terms that county commissioners and the the county mayor may serve and will define which county offices will be elected.

Go vote! Here's the information you need to know to vote early:
