HUNTINGDON (July 18) — Tennessee’s Secretary of State Tre Hargett visited the Carroll County Election Commission Saturday, July 18 during the early-voting period.
Hargett said he is traveling throughout the state to thank election workers for their service and to see how local election commissions are implementing safety and health precautions.
Hargett is encouraging Tennesseans to cast their ballot during the early-voting period, which is weekdays and Saturdays through August 1.
Hargett complimented Peg Hamlett, administrator of elections, for the safety precautions at the Carroll County Election Commission, the lone early-voting location. Plastic sheeting separates each voting booth and each machine is sanitized after each voter. Everyone entering the Election Commission is encouraged to wear a mask.
The ballot contains federal and state primaries, local school board elections, and an election for the District 5 County Commission seat.
