Smith County Elections workers will be on the downtown square helping residents register to vote on Tuesday, September 27, 2016, for National Voter Registration Day.
Even though there are 133,840 registered voters in Smith County – a 30 percent increase from the 102,626 registered voters in the 2012 General Election – Smith County Elections Administrator Karen Nelson wants to spread the word to increase voter registration.
The General Election will take place on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. The last day to register to vote for the Presidential Election is October 11, 2016. Early voting is from October 24 through November 4, 2016.
“The Smith County Elections Office will be downtown on the square from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday for National Voter Registration Day,” Mrs. Nelson said. “Look for the red, white and blue balloons and stop by if you need to register to vote, make a name change or an address change.”
The current 133,840 registered voters in Smith County is a 65 percent increase from the 80,774 registered voters for the 2008 General Election, Mrs. Nelson said.
