Spring Hill voter

A Spring Hill resident casts their vote at the Winchester Community Building during the last city elections.

While the presidential and general elections are still 110 days out, Friday will see the first part of the election process begin with early voting for the county general and state primary elections.

The county general election will see voters in Williamson County vote on the county sheriff and six seats on the county Board of Education, among other things. To view a Williamson County general election sample ballot, click here.

State primary voters will also decide on their preferred candidates in their respective political party for the upcoming general election. While Tennessee has an open primary system, meaning voters can participate in the primary of their choosing, voters must declare a party when casting their ballot.

The state primary will give voters the chance to select their preferred candidates for the U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, and the State House of Representatives in their respective parties.

For residents in Spring Hill living on the southern side of the city in Maury County, things are a little different.

While the state primary election will remain largely the same, albeit with different candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives and the State House of Representatives, the Maury County general election will see a completely separate list of candidates, including five Maury County School Board Member seats, one County Commission seat, and more.
