SHELBY COUNTY, Tenn. — The polls are open and voting is underway in Tennessee.

Voters have a lot of decisions to make. In fact, they’ll be given one of the longest ballots in county history, so you should be prepared before you go and expect to be there longer than usual.

This year’s ballot includes everything from county races to state and federal primaries, plus a long list of judicial races.

You will be asked for which party you would like a ballot or if you would prefer a municipal ballot. If you choose municipal, you will not be able to vote for state offices.

You are allowed to bring in a list of your choices, such as a sample ballot, but you are not allowed to hand them out or try to influence someone else’s choice.

Voting checklist:
