If you moved to a different county - 





If you moved to a different county, it is not considered an update.  Your registration does not transfer to other counties in Tennessee and if the above requirements are not met you will not be allowed to vote in that election.

All registration deadlines apply to new applications, therefore, you must be registered no later than thirty (30) days before the election in your new county.
