Voting Day

Early voting for the upcoming general election will officially kick off on Wednesday, Oct. 14, and lasts through Oct. 29.

But what's on the ballot? Where and when can you vote in Williamson and Maury counties?

For your convenience, the Home Page has put together this guide to help Williamson and Maury County residents with everything they need to know about participating in the 2020 election.

Voting requirements

Residents will need to be registered to vote. Click here to find out if you're registered.

If registered, voters will need to bring a state or federally issued photo ID with them to vote. An expired I.D. will still suffice. First-time voters in Tennessee must also bring with them proof of residency, which can be a utility bill or piece of mail with the voter's name and address on it.

Voters who have moved elsewhere within the same county but have not updated their place of residence through the state's voter registration system may still participate in the election, though are required to take certain steps.

These voters who have moved within the same county are encouraged to take advantage of the early voting period, as voters can cast their ballots at any of the polling places within their county. These voters can also update their address in the process.

Those who have moved within their county but wait until election day may still vote, however, they must fill out an affidavit before being allowed to vote.

Early voting locations, times

Williamson County will have eight early voting locations, with residents being allowed to vote at any of them regardless of where they reside.

Save for the Williamson County Administrative Complex in Franklin, all polling places will be open Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. - 6:30 p.m., and on Saturdays from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. through Oct. 29.

What's on the ballot in Williamson County

In addition to the general and state elections, the town of Thompson's Station and the city of Fairview will also be holding elections of their own. Fairview will have four city commission seats up for grabs, whereas Thompson's Station will have two aldermen seats to be filled.

Williamson County voters will also have the chance to vote on a referendum that would annex a small territory just south of I-840 and I-65 into the town of Thompson's Station.

Regarding the three seats up for grabs in the State House of Representatives, voters will be limited to voting in the race relevant to the district they reside in. Click here to find out which State House race you'll be voting in.
