Posted on Tuesday, July 10, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Beginning Friday, July 13, registered voters will have the opportunity to cast their ballots for the August 2 state primary and county general elections. Moore County Administrator of Elections Judy Copeland is encouraging voters to take advantage of early voting.

“Early voting is a convenient way for voters to be sure their voices are heard,” said Judy. “With this kind of flexibility, I hope that our voters will not miss this opportunity to exercise their right to vote.”

Early voting will be conducted at the Election Commission Office. You may contact the Moore County Election Commission office at 759-4532 for more information regarding early voting hours, locations and sample ballots. Early voting ends Saturday, July 28.

“I am grateful to the county election officials, poll workers and others who are willing to put in the time and effort that goes into a successful election,” said Secretary of State Tre Hargett. “Their hard work and dedication ensures that all Tennesseans have an opportunity to exercise their right to vote.”

Voters are reminded that they will need to present a state or federal issued photo ID in order to vote in person, whether during early voting or on Election Day.

Examples of acceptable forms of ID, whether current or expired, include driver licenses, U.S. passports, Department of Safety photo ID cards, U.S. military photo ID and other state or federal government photo ID cards. College student IDs are not acceptable.
