Civics 101: TN Voter Registration

What do I need to know to vote in Tennessee?

To be eligible in to vote in TN:

  • You must be a citizen of the United States
  • You must be 18 years of age or older on or before the date of the next election.
  • You must be a resident of Tennessee
  • If you have been convicted of a felony, your eligibility to register and vote depends upon the crime you were convicted of and the date of your conviction. If your conviction made you ineligible, you may regain your eligibility if your conviction has been expunged or if you have had your voting rights restored, unless you were convicted of a crime that rendered you permanently ineligible to vote.
