Beginning Wednesday, Davidson County residents can vote early for the Nov. 6 midterm election, which includes races for U.S. Senate, governor, Tennessee's 5th Congressional District and more. The early voting period runs through Thursday, Nov. 1.

A sample ballot for the election can be found on the Davidson County Election Commission's website.

Here are a few thing to know before you head to the polls:

When can I early vote?

All locations will open at 8 a.m. each day. On Mondays and Fridays, they will remain open until 5:30 p.m. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, they will be open until 7 p.m. and on Wednesdays and Saturdays until 4:30 p.m. Voting sites are closed on Sundays.

What do I need to bring?

Not sure what to take with you on Election Day? Just remember to have a valid photo ID, which can be a driver's license or photo ID issued by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security. Photo identifications issued by Tennessee state government or the federal government are acceptable even if they are expired.

Registered voters do not have to present a voter registration card to vote.
