|AUGUST 4 IS ELECTION DAY!|
The Sumner County general election and State and Federal Primary elections are on Thursday, August 4. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Your polling location may have changed since the last time you voted. Please confirm your registration status and polling location before Thursday, and make sure you make time on Thursday to vote!
WHO IS ON THE BALLOT?
In the Sumner County general election, we will be electing our new county commissioners, judges, road superintendent, odd-numbered school board district representatives, and other county officials. If you do not have any Democratic candidates to vote for in any of these races, you may leave that spot blank or choose to write-in a name as a protest vote. Don’t feel pressured to vote for someone associated with the Republican party when they do not represent your values.
In the State and Federal Primary elections, you will have a chance to vote for the Democratic gubernatorial candidate and U.S. House of Representatives candidate of your choice. We cannot endorse any Democratic candidates during the primary, so please visit the following websites to learn more about each candidate.
Jason Brantley Martin
J.B. Smiley Jr.
U.S. House of Representatives, District 6 Candidates
To vote in these races, you must ask for the Democratic ballot. Remember, it’s up to all of us to pick the strongest candidates to challenge Lee and Rose in November!
You will also be asked about retaining or replacing judges. The Williamson County Democratic Party has a great explanation of this process on its website. In speaking with local Democratic voters, many are choosing to vote to retain all judges since replacement judges would be nominated by Governor Lee.

The social media account, Sumner for Good, also created a Sumner County Progressive Voting Guide that you may want to review prior to election day.
