Hi! If you've found this page, you've obviously spent some time on our website, so thanks for visiting!
This is where I'll post different things I find interesting during the day (and possibly night). I figure it'll take me a few days to get the hang of this, so in the meantime, have a Sudoku puzzle or something else handy.
Feel free to follow me on Twitter and Facebook, or drop me a line, unless it's a complaint, in which those should be kept in your "drafts" folder. Just kidding. Sort of.
This is also the place I'll post odd links I run across, and things I simply didn't have time to do on the air. (This could be everything from the story behind the story, "news of the weird" or a link for a great online shoe sale. One never knows.)
Early voting starts today in Tennessee. We all know the importance of voting, and making sure the process is done correctly.
Below are some resources for voters in Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi that may help with questions or problems you may have at the polls.
(And if you have problems voting, speak up! Call the Secretary of State's office in your state or election commission in your county to let them know.)
Secretary of State: Tre Hargett
Twitter handle: @sectrehargett
Voting hotline: 1-877-850-4959
Voter photo ID required? YES
**note: The Tennessee Secretary of State's office stresses that a state- or federally-issued VALID ID is required to vote in Tennessee, not a CURRENT ID. That means an expired drivers license may be used - remember, it's VALID, not necessarily CURRENT.
