Ready. Set. Vote.

We all know about medical checkups, but what about a checkup to make sure you can vote? The Presidential and Tennessee State General Election takes place on Tuesday, November 8, but the deadline for voter registration is October 11. The Davidson County Election Commission wants to make sure you’re ready to vote before then, and we want to help by sharing the useful information they provided to us.

How do I know I’m ready to vote?

If you can answer “yes” to the following three questions, you are good to go.

  • Are you registered to vote?
  • Is your voter status active?
  • Is your voter information current?

What if I answered 'no' to any of the questions?

You are not registered to vote.

You can register to vote if you are a U.S. citizen, a Davidson County resident and you will be 18 years old on or before Tuesday, Nov. 8. Fill out the Voter Registration Application, print it and sign it. After that, you can bring it or mail it to the Davidson County Election Commission Office by Tuesday, Oct. 11.

Your voter status isn't active.

If you’re not sure you are registered or you can’t remember when you last voted, check your voter registration status at If you don’t find your name in the Voter Registration Information Lookup database, you can always re-register using the same directions as above.

Your voter information isn't current, or it needs to be updated.

If you’ve moved within the county or changed your name, you’ll have to update your voter registration information. Simply write your new address on the back of your voter registration card, sign it and mail it to the Election Commission (mailing address above). You can also use the change of address request form or update your information when you Early Vote.

If you have any questions about being ready to vote, please call the Davidson County Election Commission at 615-862-8800.
