Deadline To Register To Vote Is Monday Oct. 8

In order to take part in early voting – which runs from Oct. 17 through Nov. 1 – or to vote on Election Day, Nov. 6, voters must complete the registration process no later than Monday, Oct. 8. In order to register, prospective voters must be U.S. citizens and residents of Tennessee who will be at least 18 years of age or older by Election Day. Registration can be done in person at the Coffee County Election Commission office, Manchester, on weekdays between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Registration services are also available at motor vehicle offices, the Department of Human Services, the departments of health in Manchester and Tullahoma, at local libraries, at the Department of Veterans’ Affairs and at the Tennessee Rehabilitation and Vocational Center. Election commission officials reminded prospective voters to keep in mind that Oct. 8 is Columbus Day. The commission office will be open on its regular schedule that day, but it is a postal holiday. Anyone planning to register to vote by mail must have the application postmarked by Oct. 6 at the latest.
