Municipal Dates Vary for Early Voting on Schools

The special election for Shelby County's municipal schools is just weeks away on July 16th. Early voting starts soon, but the dates are different depending on where you live.
BARTLETT, TN (localmemphis.com) - Suburban voters who don't want anything to do with the school merger will soon get a chance to do something about it.

The special election for Shelby County's municipal schools is just weeks away on July 16th. Early voting starts soon, but the dates are different depending on where you live.

Since the six suburbs are all paying for their own elections, early voting in each city starts at different times. Now voters aren't sure what's happening.

"I haven't heard much of anything," says Bartlett resident Mike Keough. "It was a big bang last year as far as news and all of a sudden when it's getting close to time to vote it just kind of went downhill as far as being out there."

"We've had some confusion," says Jason Sykes with Better Bartlett Schools. "We're making our push to get voters out to the polls… we've had people ask us about what are the early voting dates and locations, things like that."

Here's what you need to know. During early voting, no matter where you live, you can vote at any location. For example, Germantown residents can cast ballots in Bartlett.

Early voting starts June 26th at the Shelby County office building in downtown Memphis.

Polling places open for early voting in Arlington, Lakeland and Millington this Saturday, June 29th.

Polls open in Bartlett, Collierville and Germantown on July 6th.

While you can cast your ballots anywhere during early voting, on Election Day you have to go to your assigned polling location.
