Voter Registration Month

September 1st, 2021

Our state and nation are stronger when we all register to vote and make our voices heard at the polls. By casting a ballot, we can have a real impact on our lives, communities and future generations. Fortunately, in Tennessee, it has never been easier to register to vote or cast a ballot.

That is why United Ways of Tennessee are proud to work with the Tennessee Secretary of State’s office to celebrate National Voter Registration Month in September and National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, Sept. 28.  National Voter Registration Month is a nonpartisan, nationwide effort encouraging all eligible voters to register and participate in the electoral process.

More than 3 million Tennesseans cast a ballot in the 2020 presidential election, blowing away previous voter turnout and participation records. Now we have the opportunity to build on this momentum. You can participate by registering to vote, ensuring your registration is up to date, encouraging others to register and by casting a ballot in upcoming state and local elections.

Local and statewide elected officials make decisions about schools, transportation, healthcare and many things that affect our daily lives.

In Tennessee, there have been state and local elections decided by only a handful of votes. In these races, your vote could be the deciding factor.  But if you don’t vote, you are giving up your voice and letting others decide who will represent you.

If you have never voted before, the first step to casting a ballot is to register. Registering to vote, updating your address or checking your registration status is fast, easy and secure with the Secretary of State’s online voter registration system, GoVoteTN.gov.

Using a computer, phone or tablet, any U.S. citizen with a driver’s license or a photo ID issued by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security can register in minutes at GoVoteTN.gov. A paper voter registration application is also available to download at GoVoteTN.gov.

For more information about how to register to vote in Tennessee, go to GoVoteTN.gov or call the Tennessee Secretary of State’s Division of Elections at 1-877-850-4959. If you are not registered, National Voter Registration Month is the perfect time to join the movement and register to vote today. If you are registered, you can support National Voter Registration Month by encouraging your friends, coworkers and neighbors to register.Your vote is your voice and your vote matters!
