The Honor Vote program gives Tennesseans the opportunity to dedicate their vote to active-duty military personnel and veterans.
The Honor Vote program lets Tennesseans dedicate their vote to those who are serving or have served our country. The men and women of the U.S. military ensure our freedom and democracy, allowing us to cast a ballot each Election Day.
Question: How will people know who I’m dedicating my vote to?
Answer: There are two main ways to let people know about the service member you are honoring. The first is social media. After you register, post it to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #GoVoteTN. Second, wear your Honor Vote button on Election Day. You will be surprised how many people notice and ask what it represents.
Question: Am I allowed to wear my Honor Vote button when I vote?
Answer: Yes. Your Honor Vote button may be worn through the entire voting process.
Question: Does this mean I get to vote twice?
Answer: Tennesseans are only allowed to vote once. The Honor Vote program simply allows a voter to dedicate their single vote to any veteran or active duty U.S. service member they choose.
