NASHVILLE - Despite having no presidential or U.S. Senate contests on Tennessee's 2022 election calendar, voters will have plenty of reasons to go vote this spring, summer and fall with elective offices ranging from governor, Congress and the state legislature on down to county mayors, commissioners, judges and others.
"You've got every local official elected in the state" on the ballot, Tennessee Republican Party Chair Scott Golden said in a telephone interview. "You're already talking about thousands of candidates. Throw on top of it that every eight years we elect every judicial office in the state. So you got local elections and judicial elections - and of course a pretty good monumental effort on our part to get school board elections involved as well.
