Tuesday, Nov. 8 is Election Day and voters in the Mid-South voiced their thoughts both on their ballots and online.

The Shelby County ballot includes many races, as well as four Tennessee Constitutional Amendments.

Voters will decide to keep or remove language in the state constitution legalizing slavery and whether to make the state’s “right-to-work” law a part of the constitution. 

In Memphis, voters are seeking to fill seats for Municipal Court Judge, Division 2, and District 4 of the Memphis City Council.

But it was on social media where they were encouraging people to vote, sharing their thoughts on this year’s election and who they believe can best lead the state as governor.
