Hamilton County voter registration hits record high

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN. (Times Free Press) -- The nearly 220,000 people registered to vote as of Friday morning is the highest total ever for Hamilton County and a 24 percent increase over 2004. Officials attributed the jump to population growth.

With the registration deadline still a week away, elections administrator Charlotte Mullis-Morgan said a stream of young people could help the county match its 2004-to-2008 increase, when 25,000 new voters registered between presidential contests. The last day to register at the Election Commission is Oct. 8. Even though it's Columbus Day, the building will keep normal business hours.

Registration forms also are available at local public libraries, post offices and the Election Commission website. Mailed forms must be postmarked by Oct. 6.
