All registered voters
While the state gubernatorial race and federal election for Sen. Bob Corker's seat have commanded the most attention across Tennessee, you'll also be voting in a handful of other state elections -- including choosing Congressman Jimmy Duncan's replacement in the U.S. House of Representatives District 2 race. You can find a sample ballot here.
Knox County has 10 locations where you can cast your vote. The beauty of early voting is that you aren't required to vote at your specific polling place. Instead, you can vote wherever is most convenient for you. These are the 10 locations (Note: hours change on Oct 29, 30, 31, and Nov. 1):

Early voting starts Wednesday, Oct. 17 and runs through Thursday, Nov. 1. After that, you'll have to cast your ballot on election day, Nov. 6. Most polling places will be operating at the same time, with the exception of the Karns Senior Center which will not be holding Saturday voting (which you can see above). All polling locations are closed on Sundays. Note: Those hours might occasionally change for special circumstances. You can check the schedule for the specific day you plan to go.
Standard hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
