Knox County Clerk announces deadline for changing voter party affiliation

December 19, 2014

By Bobbie Poynter

Knox County Clerk Mike Corey is reminding registered voters who wish to vote in another party’s May 2015 Primary Election or be a candidate as a member of another political party in the regularly scheduled 2015 elections, they must change their registration no later than Dec. 31, 2014.

Those wishing to change their affiliation must go to the county clerk’s office and fill out a new registration card by noon Wednesday, Dec. 31, at which time the office will be closing for the holiday.

To be qualified to vote in a partisan primary election, a voter must have been a member of that party on Dec. 31 of the preceding year or a new registrant who has not changed his or her affiliation.
