Beginning this year, all voters must present a state or federal issued ID containing the voter's name and photograph at the polls. An expired driver's license (or other expired state or federal issued ID) will satisfy this requirement as long as the ID contains a picture of the voter.

Tennessee law has changed so that any voter who is sixty years of age or older may vote by mail. Photo identification is not required to vote by mail. Anyone interested in voting by mail, can contact the Election Commission office at (865) 215-2480 or visit the Knox County Election Commission website. The final day to request an absentee by-mail ballot is October 30.

Monday, October 8 was the final day to register to vote for the upcoming presidential election.

For those who don't participate in early voting, Election Day is November 6.
