Vickie Koelman, Commissioner of the Montgomery Election Commission, announces September is National Voter Registration Month in Tennessee. Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett has tasked all county election commissions to share this information as broadly as possible for greatest exposure.

Secretary Hargett joins the Montgomery County Election Commission 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 encouraging already registered voters to update their current registration if they have recently changed their address.

In a concerted effort to remind eligible voters to register or update their voting information before deadlines pass, the National Association of Secretaries of State (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.

“The right to vote should never be taken for granted. “I encourage all eligible U.S. citizens to register if they haven’t already,” said Secretary Hargett, who is also president of NASS.
