There will not be a Democratic Primary for county offices in Spring 2022. We will likely call a party nominating convention in March.
Information About Voting
You can register to vote online or request an absentee ballot through the Tennessee Secretary of State’s voting website (govotetn.com). You must register to vote at least 30 days before an election.
Elections in Maury County are administered by the Maury County Election Commission. Their voter information page is a good resource for additional information.
County reapportionment was completed in November 2021, changing the boundaries for County Commission and School Board.
Tennessee State House maps were proposed in December 2021 and were passed by the Tennessee Senate and Tennessee House in January 2022. This created two Tennessee House districts whuch include parts of Maury County:
- District 64, including the eastern part of the county (most of Columbia and Spring Hill); and,
- District 71, including the western part of the county, as well as parts of Lawrence, Wayne and Hardin counties.
All of Maury County was placed in Tennessee Senate District 28, and U.S. House District 5.
These maps are subject to litigation, and the Tennessee Democratic Party has threatened to sue. We will provide additional information on litigation as it develops.
