The office of Tennessee Secretary of State is proud to announce the launch of GoVoteTN. The new Tennessee Voter Smartphone App is now available in the Apple Store and in Google Play.
"This is another Tennessee voter resource that answers common questions about voting from one's phone," Secretary of State Tre Hargett said, "This resource will give voters more information about the who, what, when, and where of elections. The free app allows you to view voter-specific information when searching by name or address."
Highlights of the app include:
Early voting and Election Day polling locations and hours of operation
Candidate list for upcoming election
Ability to mark sample ballots for upcoming election
Navigation to early voting and Election Day polling locations
County election commission information
Access online election results through the application
The free app allows Tennessee residents the opportunity to be more informed about elections and who their elected officials are. "I am pleased we are able to offer the smartphone application to voters who continue to utilize technology more every day. I expect voters will find the app easy to use and a great source of information," Coordinator of Elections Mark Goins said.
"Tennesseans make an effort every election season to go vote, we are trying to match that effort and give them easier access to information like polling location maps and hours, election commission contact information, and sample ballots in order to assist Tennessee voters," said Hargett.
Information in the application is provided by Tennessee county election commissions. To learn more about the GoVoteTN app or elections visit the state's election website at www.GoVoteTN.com.
