UPDATE: More than 113,000 people in Knox County alone cast an early ballot, according to the election commission.

Polls for early voting are now closed in East Tennessee, but you still have one more chance to cast a ballot: Election Day.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6 and polls will be open across the area from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST. Keep in mind if you are in line to vote before the 8 p.m. deadline -- you cannot be turned away.

The early voting locations no longer apply. If you want to vote on Nov. 6, you will need to know your assigned polling place -- which should have been mailed to you after you registered to vote.

If you are unsure, there are links to the various county election commissions below to help you find your polling location.
