Election Day voting tips
* Be sure you are properly registered to vote. Many voters who moved here recently think they are registered to vote in Shelby County because they registered to vote in another county. But you have to be registered to vote in Shelby County in order to vote here. However, if you moved within the county, you are still registered to vote here, but you may need to vote in a different precinct. Unfortunately, it is too late to register to vote now for this year's election.
* Know where to vote. Voters who arrive at the polls unsure of the correct precinct tie up a considerable amount of the election officers' time. If you don't know where to vote, call the clerk's office, 633-4410, preferably before Election Day.
* Have your ID ready. Do not assume the election workers know you because you vote in the same precinct every year. Have a driver's license or some other picture form of ID ready.
* Know how you will vote. Check the sample ballot, familiarize yourself it and make your choices before you get in the booth.
* Avoid the busy times. Longest lines at the polling places will be in the early morning before 9 a.m., at lunch time and in the last two hours or so before the polls close. If you can vote at any time of the day, choose mid-morning or mid-afternoon.
