New blue voter registration cards coming in the mail
Tuesday, July 3, 2012

Every active registered voter in Wilson County will receive a new blue voter registration card in the mail. 

Wilson County along with the other 94 Tennessee counties has new district lines due to redistricting that takes place every 10 years. The blue voter registration card has each voter’s current polling place and district information on it. Over 63,000 cards were printed, put in envelopes and mailed the last week. 

The new cards have every voter’s individual voting information on them. The districts and poll location is determined by where the voter lives. Voters who have changed addresses should provide written notice to the Wilson County Election Commission either in person or my mail as soon as possible.

“We encourage voters to inspect their card carefully and contact the Wilson County Election Commission with questions or concerns,” said Phillip Warren, Wilson County Administrator of Elections. “Election Day is Aug. 2. We want to take time now to straighten out any registration issues and not delay any one who votes during Early Voting or on Election Day,” Warren continued.

Early voting for the Aug. 2 election begins on July 13. Early Voting in Lebanon at the Election Commission Office and in Mt Juliet at the Mt Juliet Community Center will be open July 13 through July 28. Early Voting sites in Watertown at the Watertown Community Center and, for the first time, in Gladeville at the Gladeville Community Center will be open July 23 through July 28. Warren encourages, “Wilson County voters to take advantage of one the four convenient Early Voting sites this election.” 

“Remember to bring your State or federally issued photo ID when you come to vote during Early Voting or on Election Day. You can vote without a voter registration card, but not without proper photo ID” Warren commented.

Watch your mail for your new blue voter registration card. If you have not received it by July 13 please contact the Wilson County Election Commission.
