The secretary of state’s office is set to officially roll out its new online voter registration system in Tennessee. The new system is already available online but the office will officially announce it next week. The move will put the state’s voter registration into the digital age as Tennessee joins a majority of other states that have already implemented similar systems. “This system meets people where they already are: online,” Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett said. “It will improve accuracy and efficiency for voters and election officials by ensuring there are fewer errors and more accurate voter rolls.”
The online voter option, now available at https://ovr.govote.tn.gov, is the product of a law passed in 2016 that called for the state to have an online registration system running by July 1, 2017.
During the 2017 legislative session, the deadline was extended to Sept. 1, 2017 but the site has been up for a couple of weeks.
The new system will allow first-time voters to register and current voters to update registration records.
