The Hamilton County Election Commission reminds citizens that Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day. The day is the high point of National Voter Registration Month, a time when state and county election officials have been working to encourage voter participation and increase awareness of state requirements and deadlines for voting.
On Tuesday, county elections officials invite you to be a part of the National Voter Registration Day. The office will be open until 6 p.m. for those who need to get registered or update their records.
“National Voter Registration Day is a great time to make sure that your registration is up to date or to register for the first time” said Hamilton Administrator of Elections Charlotte Mullis- Morgan. “We are ready to help you in any way we can at any time.”
Social media has played a role in this month’s promotion. Voters have been encouraged to visit www.GoVoteTN.com, print signs encouraging voter registration, and then post photos of themselves holding the signs on social media using the hashtag #GoVoteTN.
“I am excited to see so many voters sharing their enthusiasm for National Voter Registration Month,” said Secretary of State Tre Hargett, who serves as president of the National Association of Secretaries of State. “I encourage voters to visit our web site to make sure they are properly registered to vote at their current addresses. Also, I encourage even more people to get involved in the campaign via social media.”
