NEWPORT—Cocke County Election Commission witnessed a good
response from citizens toward National Voter Registration Month, which is
celebrated during September.
Cocke County Administrator of Elections Joyce Slagle said
her office has had a steady stream of citizens either registering to vote up
updating their voting information.
Slagle said the effort, which was highlighted by National
Voter Registration Day last Tuesday, is to make eligible voters aware of
registration deadlines and requirements, as well as encouraging already
registered voters to update their current registration if they have recently
changed their address.
