Get out and vote on November 7th


A Microvote Infinity voting machineIt’s really great that 20,972 people early voted in Montgomery County Tennessee, but a total of 74,843 people are registered to vote here. That leaves 53,871 people who have yet to vote! I want to strongly encourage each and every one of you to do so, on November 7th.
