NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Early voting has started for the Nov. 6 presidential election, and Tennessee election officials are anticipating another record turnout.
The early voting period began Wednesday and ends Nov. 1.
Secretary of State Tre Hargett says typically a new record is set every four years, and that if history is any indication, this "will be a record-setting election."
In November 2008, there were about 1.5 million early voters in Tennessee.
Before going to the polls, election officials are reminding voters to adhere to a new state law and have government-issued photo identification when they arrive at the polls. Individuals who don't have a proper ID can vote provisionally.
