NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tuesday is the deadline to register to vote in Tennessee's August primary elections.


Information on how to register can be obtained from the Tennessee Secretary of State's election division or at a county election commission. Primary elections for Democratic and Republican candidates for governor, U.S. senator and all nine of the state's congressional districts are on the Aug. 2 ballot. Party nominees will also be chosen for state legislative races.
