Who has time for long lines and stress on Election Day?
Wilson County Administrator of Elections Phillip Warren knows that a lot of unexpected things can occur when waiting until the last minute - and strongly encourages Wilson County voters to take advantage of Early Voting.
Early Voting for the Federal and State Primary, Wilson County General and Lebanon Special School District will begin Friday, July 15, through Saturday, July 30.
Four locations will be open for Early Voting, and Wilson Countians can take their pick of which location is most convenient for them - versus voting at an assigned polling place on Election Day.
- Election Commission Office, 203 East Main Street, Lebanon;
- Juliet Community Center, 1075 Charlie Daniels Pkwy, Mt. Juliet;
- Watertown Community Center, 8630 Sparta Pike, Watertown;
- and the Gladeville Community Center, 95 McCreary Rd., Lebanon.
Locations will be open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m.
"Please come Early Vote," said Warren. "Avoid the long lines and make your voting experience the best it can be."
Voters should bring a state or federally-issued photo ID to vote. Acceptable forms of identification include: Tennessee Driver's License; United States Passport; Photo ID issued by the Tennessee Dept. of Safety and Homeland Security; United States Military photo ID; and Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit with photo.
College IDs, library cards or photo IDs issued by other states are not acceptable.
The final day to register to vote in the next election - the Nov. 8, 2016, Federal, State, Lebanon, Mt. Juliet and Watertown Municipal elections - is Oct. 11.
