Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett joins the DeKalb 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.“It is important for individuals to register to vote, but it is equally important for voters to verify that their registrations are up to date,” said DeKalb County Administrator of Elections Dennis Stanley. “If you have moved, now is a great time to update your 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 Sept. 24 as National Voter Registration Day.
