Early and absentee voting
Thursday was the last day to vote early in the November 6 General Election in Tennessee. Josh Blanchard, Cocke County Administrator of Elections, says 5892 voters participated in Early Voting or returned absentee ballots in Cocke County. Those numbers are down from the November, 2016 presidential election when 7,009 ballots were cast early and by absentee. In Jefferson County a total of 9,788 early and absentee ballots were cast for next week's election, down from November, 2016 numbers of 12,525. Statewide nearly 1.3 million votes were cast early or absentee. Blanchard says although Early Voting is over, those persons who have received absentee ballots have until Election Night, November 6, for the election commission office to receive those ballots by mail. On Election Day voting hours in Cocke County will be 9:00 am - 8:00 pm at all precincts. Voters must vote at their assigned polling place and must be in line at the correct polling place before 8:00 pm on Tuesday night. Those in line before 8:00 p.m. at the correct precinct will be allowed to vote as long as they are in line before 8:00 p.m. Registered voters can call 623-2042 to double-check their polling location or may use the website GoVoteTN.com. If you are a Cocke County registered voter but have moved within the County and need to update your current address, please call the election commission office at 623-2042 on today or Monday to plan ahead for Election Day so you will be at the right precinct. Voters are required to bring a valid photo ID issued by the Tennessee government (such as a Tennessee Driver Licence with photo or Carry Permit) or by the federal government (such as a Passport or valid military ID with photo). Out-of-state driver licenses cannot be accepted. For more information about the photo ID law visit GoVoteTN.com or call the election commission office. Registered voters are not required to bring their voter registration cards when voting.
