Tennessee’s generous early voting period for the Aug. 4 State and Federal Primary & State and County General Election begins this Friday, July 15, and runs Monday to Saturday until Saturday, July 30.
On the August ballot, Tennessee voters will see primary races for Governor, U.S. House, State Senate, State House and the State Executive Committee members for each political party and retention or general elections for judicial offices and other state and local positions.
Early voting allows Tennesseans to avoid Election Day crowds and shorten their wait time. Early voting also offers the flexibility of evening and Saturday hours and multiple polling locations in many counties.
Early voting in Bradley County will run from July 15th through July 30th, Monday through Friday from 9AM until 6PM and on Saturdays from 9AM until 4PM. You may vote early at the Bradley County Election Commission office, Bradley Square Mall in the former Bath & Body Works, and at Planet Fitness on APD-40. During early voting, you may vote at any one of the three locations. If you vote on election day, you will need to vote at your assigned polling location.
Wednesday, Cleveland State Community College students who spearheaded Joker’s Law were honored along with celebrating K-9 Joker’s health at the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.
Joker’s law makes it a class D felony to assault a police, fire, search and rescue dog, a service animal, or a police horse.
The celebration wrapped up with K-9 Joker eating cake and smiles from the students who worked so hard to make Joker’s Law possible.
The law passed on April 27th, and it was signed by Governor Bill Lee last month on June 1st.
A man led Hamilton County Sheriff’s deputies on a chase along Hixson Pike after they tried pulling him over for a stolen SUV Wednesday.
They attempted to pull him over but the man sped off, HCSO says.

At one point a pit maneuver was attempted but HCSO says the driver kept going.
He turned down three more streets before ending up on Gold Point Circle South where he crashed into the side of the road.
The driver was later caught after trying to run away and authorities say he was taken to a local hospital.
