Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett joins fellow members of the National Association of Secretaries of State (NASS) in reminding citizens that September is National Voter Registration Month. Secretary Hargett is working with county election officials to make eligible voters aware of registration deadlines and requirements, as well as promoting voter registration.
"The right to vote should never be taken for granted," said Secretary Hargett, who is also president of NASS. "I encourage all eligible United States citizens to register if they haven’t already. Also, it’s important for people who have moved to make sure voter registration records are updated with their current address information."
In a concerted effort to remind eligible voters to register and/or update their voting information before deadlines pass, NASS has also declared September 24 as National Voter Registration Day. The goal is to encourage voter participation and increase awareness of state requirements and deadlines for voting.
