Testing, testing...

The Henry County Election Commission is now officially in its new home.

The election commission has finished its move into the Weston Hall building on the Grove School campus.

“Probably the biggest delay was just getting our address established, because that held up the internet,” said DeLaina Green, administrator of elections.

Green said she and deputy clerk Kim Jenkins were still getting accustomed to the new office space.

“It’s like a new job and we’re learning it all over again,” Green said.

The move comes just in time for the March 3 presidential preference primary election.

“People need to be sure that they have their voter registration up to date,” Green said.

If not, citizens must have registered no later than Feb. 3 in order to vote in that election.

That can either be done online at www.GoVoteTN.gov, or by mailing or hand-delivering a voter registration form to the Henry County Election Commission.

It might also be a good idea to check your voter registration status online at the website.

Voters will need their name, year of birth and the last four digits of their Social Security number.

If you’d rather use a smartphone, registration can also be done with the GoVoteTN app for iPhone and Android devices.

If you have trouble, Green said people are welcome to come into the office in person.

“We can usually walk them through the website,” she said.

Early voting for the March election begins at 8:30 a.m. Feb. 12 at the election commission office.

The election commission is open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.
