Early presidential voting begins February 10

Early voting in the "SEC Primary" begins Wednesday, February 10 and runs through Mondays and Saturdays until Tuesday, February 23.
Actual Election Day is Tuesday, March 1 for the presidential preference primary, called the "SEC Primary" by some. In this election cycle the Volunteer State will join six other Southern states on March 1 to help decide who could be the next president of the United States.
Secretary of State Tre Hargett is urging voters to take advantage of early voting if possible because of unpredictable winter weather and an incredibly long ballot.
"When you consider the number of presidential candidates as well as the number of delegates, some voters across the state will have many choices," Hargett said.
Tennessee's 95 counties conduct early voting at their local election commission offices or at another location designated by the election commission. In Cannon County, early voting is conducted in the Adams Office Building, room 224, 301 West Main St. Woodbury. Matt Teply is election administrator.
An ad explaining what choices are available during the "SEC Primary" is on page 5 of today's Cannon Courier.
Tennesseans voting early or on Election Day should remember to bring valid state or federal photo identification with them to the polls.
