DPBC Joins Project Register Initiative

February 20, 2018

Dodson Parker is proud to have joined more than 70 other Middle Tennessee businesses, nonprofits, and professional organizations in support of Project Register, an effort to raise awareness about the ease of online voter registration in Tennessee.

Tennessee is ranked 40th in the United States in voter registration and 50th in voter turnout.

Project Register is a bipartisan initiative, spearheaded by two of Middle Tennessee’s elected officials — U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (D) and State Sen. Steve Dickerson (R) — who both believe more Tennesseans should be participating in the political process.

Registering to vote in Tennessean is easier than ever; in 2016, the Tennessee General Assembly approved online voter registration.

To register to vote online, you must be a U.S. citizen, a resident of Tennessee, must be 18 years old on or before the next election, and must not have been convicted of a felony, or, if you have, your voting rights must have been restored.
