Early voting for Williamson County starts Friday

Early voting in Williamson County for the Tennessee General and Primary Elections will begin Friday July 13, and end on July 28.

Voters may visit 2 locations to cast their vote from July 13 – 23: the John P. Holt Brentwood Library in Brentwood, and the County Administrative Complex in Franklin. Starting July 23, 4 additional voting locations will be opened: the Nolensville, Fairview, and Longview Recreation centers, and the Columbia State Community College campus in Franklin.

The first two locations will be open for early voting from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. until July 23, after which, all locations will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

This early voting period will allow residents to get a headstart on the August 2 primary elections, in which voters will choose who to best represent their party for the November midterm elections.

Significant elections include the Tennessee governor’s race, which according to a study by Vanderbilt University, appears to be incredibly competitive.

Another significant upcoming election is the U.S. Senate race, as the U.S. Senate currently has a split of 51 Republicans, 47 Democrats and two independents.

After Republican Senator Bob Corker announced that he would not be seeking reelection in 2018, the seat became highly contested, with Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn and Democratic candidate Phil Bredesen staying close in the polls.

The Republican Party stands to lose absolute majority in the Senate with just 1 lost seat, which has caused this particular election to receive national attention.
