“With the city of Savannah’s crews busy as honeybees working to light the downtown gazebo area, we have decided to move the Farm to Table Dinner to the Hardin County Courthouse lawn, to be staged under the tree lights which will add to our festive outdoor celebration,” said Beth Pippin, Hardin County Tourism director.
SEPT. 27– Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett announced the launch of the state’s new online voter registration system.
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.
“This system meets people where they already are: online. It will improve accuracy and efficiency for voters and election officials by ensuring there are fewer errors and more accurate voter rolls,” Hargett said.
“In addition to offering a convenient way to register to vote, I’m excited that online voter registration will allow currently registered voters the opportunity to update address changes instantly. This will eliminate paperwork and additional time spent at a polling place for voters who moved but did not notify the election commission before the election,” said Hardin County Administrator of Elections Jeanette Cronise.
