Go Vote! Knoxville: 2nd Circuit Open House

Monday, July 17, 2017

Meet your candidates and enjoy free pizza!

To get there, take Route 11.

GO VOTE! KNOXVILLE is a nonpartisan initiative to encourage community engagement and increase voter turnout in this year’s elections.

It is being managed by the City’s Communications Department, in partnership with the Knox County Election Commission and community leaders and sponsors.

Voters will be electing a majority of the next City Council, and Mayor Madeline Rogero and members of the current City Council want robust participation in the election process.

GO VOTE! KNOXVILLE will include a series of six get-out-the-vote public meetings, one in each of the six City Council districts. At these community meetings, Mayor Rogero, current Council members and neighborhood leaders will talk about the importance of getting to know the candidates and the issues, and then voting in the Aug. 29 primary and Nov. 7 general election.

The City and local businesses will provide pizza and snacks at these public meetings, as well as family-friendly games and activities. The Election Commission will provide voter information, register new voters and demonstrate how to cast a ballot using its voting machines. Candidates will be introduced, and voters will have opportunities to talk one-on-one with them.
