NEWPORT—Time is running out to take advantage of Early Voting in Cocke County at the Early Voting Site near Food City West.

Early Voting goes from 9 a.m. through 6 p.m. on Wednesday, and Thursday, at 137 Western Plaza Drive. Thursday, October 29, is the last day of Early Voting.

Early Voting is encouraged as the line moves quickly with more voting machines than ever and more registrars. All Cocke County registered voters may participate in Early Voting.

Those who wait until Election Day to vote will have voting hours of 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on November 3 at their assigned polling place. Election Day voters must vote at their assigned place. Election Day voters are asked to please be patient in line and practice social distancing.

Registered Cocke County voters who have moved to a new address in Cocke County are encouraged to vote in Early Voting. If you wait until Election Day to change your address, the process takes longer to complete, could hold up the lines, and could result in the voter having to travel to another polling place.
