The right to vote is the one right that preserves all others. This November, it’s imperative that all of us are able to vote when we show up to the polls.

The Tennessee Democratic Party is committed to protecting your right to vote through our Voter Protection Program.

Here’s how we’ll do it:

-Asking voters to take action through #CHECKYOURSELF: Making sure voters check to make sure they are still listed as “active voters” on the voter registration rolls
-Coordinating with our Democratic candidates and campaigns around the state to help people get to the polls
-Staffing a statewide Voter Protection Hotline, 855-844-VOTE (8683), with lawyers and voter advocates during early voting and on Election Day
-Enlisting the help of poll watchers around the state while people are voting

Poll watchers observe the performance of election officials in and around the polling place and may protest any aspect of the conduct of an election. For example, a poll watcher would object in the event an election official refused to offer a provisional ballot to a registered voter who did not have proper photo ID.

  • Can you be a poll watcher during Early Voting (Oct. 17-Nov. 1, 2018) and/or on Election Day (Nov. 6, 2018)?
  • Can you answer calls from voters who call into our Voter Protection Hotline during Early Voting and/or on Election Day?
  • Can you help us recruit other Voter Protection team members?
