Tennessee secretary of state's office launches voter registration effort for social media


NASHVILLE, Tennessee — September is National Voter Registration Month, and Secretary of State Tre Hargett wants social media users to add a special hashtag to their messages to encourage others to register to vote.

Hargett's office says people can post photos to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram asking people if they're registered and use the hashtag #GoVoteTN. Signs to hold in the photos can be printed at http://GoVoteTN.com .

The website also allows users to check their registration status or access a voter registration form.

Voters must be registered at least 30 days before an election to cast a ballot.
