Voters can now register online, says Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett. The state's new site for online voter registration launched Wednesday at GoVoteTN.com.

The system offers a convenient way for voters to easily register or change their address if they have moved. Counties across Tennessee can now securely receive voter registration information faster than using traditional paper registrations.

The new system will allow U.S. citizens with a driver’s license or photo ID issued by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security to register to vote online. Each online submission is checked against the department's database while securely obtaining an electronic signature already on file with the state.

Giles County Administrator of Elections Kathy Bassham said the new site makes it easy for every to register right from home.

Hargett said the online site will improve accuracy and efficiency for voters and election officials, ensuring there are fewer errors and more accurate voter rolls.

Tennesseans must still register online or use a paper form at least 30 days before an election to participate.
