"Your vote is your voice and your vote matters." - Secretary of State, Tre Hargett

As Tennesseans prepare to cast their ballot in the Nov. 8 State and Federal General Election, Secretary of State Tre Hargett wants you to know that your state and county election officials are the sources you can trust for accurate election information.

“During elections voters may see information being shared that is old, incorrect and sometimes intentionally misleading,” said Secretary of State Tre Hargett. “Your vote is your voice and your vote matters. That’s why it’s vital that you get accurate, up-to-date election information directly from sources you can trust.”

In Tennessee, the Secretary of State’s Division of Elections and 95 county election commissions are the trusted sources for the election information voters need. To find election information from the Secretary of State, voters can visit the GoVoteTN.gov website and GoVoteTN App.
