Beginning Friday, July 13, registered voters will have the opportunity to cast their ballots for the Aug. 2 state primary and county general elections.
Roane County Administrator of Elections Charles Holiway is encouraging voters to take advantage of early voting.
“Early voting is a convenient way for voters to be sure their voices are heard,” Holiway said. “With this kind of flexibility, I hope that our voters will not miss this opportunity to exercise their right to vote.”
Early voting will be held at Roane County Courthouse in Kingston, Harriman Community Center, Rockwood Community Center and Oak Ridge First Christian Church.
Voters may call the Roane County Election Commission office at 376-3184 for more information regarding locations and sample ballots.
Early voting hours are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and from 9 a.m. to noon Saturdays.
Early voting ends Saturday, July 28.
“I am grateful to the county election officials, poll workers, and others who are willing to put in the time and effort that goes into a successful election,” Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett said.
“Their hard work and dedication ensures that all Tennesseans have an opportunity to exercise their right to vote.”
Voters are reminded that they will need to present state- or federal-issued photo identification in order to vote in person, whether during early voting or on Election Day.
Examples of acceptable forms of ID, whether current or expired, include driver licenses, U.S. passports, Tennessee Department of Safety photo ID cards, U.S. military photo IDs and other state or federal government photo ID cards.
College student IDs are not acceptable.
