National Voter Registration Month

September is National Voter Registration Month in Tennessee.

It is National Voter Registration Month in Tennessee and across the nation, and the 2020 election year is fast approaching.

Chad Gray, administrator of elections for Williamson County, recently announced a Voter Registration Drive will be held at each public and private high school in the county over the next two weeks.

“We are pleased to work with the faculty and staff of each high school in the county to encourage their students to register to vote and participate in the electoral process this upcoming election season,” he said. “It is also important to remember that our younger citizens are the future leaders of our nation.”

This is the schedule for the public high schools in the county:

  • Sept. 17: Nolensville High and Renaissance High
  • Sept. 18: Ravenwood High and Page High
  • Sept. 19: Independence High
  • Sept. 20: Centennial High, Fairview High and Summit High
  • Sept. 24: Brentwood High and Franklin High

An individual must be registered in their county of residence no later than 30 days before Election Day in order to cast a ballot.

Voters who will be 18 years of age on or before March 3, 2020 — the date of the Presidential Preference Primary — will be entitled to register to vote.
