Early Voting Begins This Week in Tennessee

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.-  Early voting is just three days away. The polls for early voting open in Tennessee on Wednesday, a day after the president and Mitt Romney face off in their second debate.

President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney are each forgoing time on the campaign trail in favor of hours of intense debate preparation ahead of their next face-to-face meeting which will be in a town hall format with undecided voters in the audience.

Obama spent Sunday with advisers at a riverfront resort in Williamsburg, Va. while Romney retreated to his Boston-area home. The days devoted to debate preparations underscore just how important the next face-off, which falls exactly three weeks from Election Day, is to both campaigns.

Millions of Americans are already casting their ballots through early voting, meaning there are few opportunities to recover from slip-ups in what remains an exceedingly close race.

Voters must have government issued identification to vote in Tennessee. That includes a state driver's license, passport, military ID, or handgun carry permit. This election isn't just for the presidential race but also the Tennessee General election.
