The polls are opening across Tennessee.

Voters will cast ballots in the presidential race, for one U.S. Senate seat, nine U.S. House contests, the entire state House and half of the state Senate.

Knox County and Knoxville are asking voters to consider closing current pension plans for law enforcement to avoid ballooning expenses with the plans.  The Knoxville amendment would open a new hybrid plan while the Knox County amendment does not offer future specifics. 

More than 1.4 million Tennessee voters cast ballots during the early voting period.

A state or federally issued photo ID is required to vote. This is the first year for the requirement, which also applied in the March presidential primary and the August state primary.
