Harmony Church of Bartlett, 6740 St. Elmo Road, will be one of the early voting precincts open ahead of the Aug. 4 elections.

Early voting begins on Friday, July 15, for state and county general elections, the Arlington Municipal election, Town of Collierville election, City of Germantown election, City of Memphis special election, and state and federal primary elections from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at select voting precincts.

Early voting ends on Saturday, July 30, for the Aug. 4 elections.

Two of the more high-profile races are for Shelby County mayor and District Attorney General. Democratic incumbent Lee Harris is seeking re-election to his second four-year term as county mayor against Republican challenger Worth Morgan.

Harris, a former state senator, easily defeated challenger Kenneth Moody in the Democratic Primary election on May 3, garnering 70.1 percent of the vote.

Morgan, who has been a member of the Memphis City Council since 2016, ran unopposed in the Republican Primary in May.

Republican incumbent Amy Weirich will face Democrat Steve Mulroy in the race for attorney general of Shelby County.

Weirich has served in the role since being appointed by former Gov. Bill Haslam in 2011. She was last elected to the eight-year term position in 2014.

Mulroy, a University of Memphis law professor, served as a Shelby County commissioner for District 5 from 2006-2014 and ran unsuccessfully for county mayor in 2014. He got 22,127 votes in the Democratic Primary election in May, defeating Janika White (15,880 votes) and Linda Harris (10,055).

Incumbent Shelby County Sheriff Floyd Bonner faces two independents in the sheriff’s race, Keisha Scott and Donald Taylor.

Mick Wright, who represents Bartlett on the Shelby County Commission, is unopposed for the District 3 seat he currently occupies. Republican incumbent Amber Mills faces Democrat Donna McDonald-Martin for the County Commission District 1 seat that represents Arlington.

In the Federal Primary election, District 8 U.S. Congressman David Kustoff faces three Republican challengers, Danny Ray Bridger Jr., Gary Dean Clouse, and Bob Hendry.

Leo AwGoWhat, Charlotte Bergmann, and Brown Dudley square off in the Republican Primary for U.S. Representative of District 9, while Democratic incumbent Steve Cohen faces challenger M. Latroy Alexandria-Williams in the Democratic Primary.

In the State Primary election, incumbent Bill Lee is running unopposed for a second term as Tennessee governor in the Republican Primary while three Democrats – Carnita Atwater of Memphis, Jason Brantley Martin of Nashville, and JB Smiley Jr. of Memphis – will battle in the Democratic Primary for the right to face Lee in the general election in November.

In the Bartlett area, early voting precincts include Harmony Church of Bartlett, 6740 St. Elmo Road; Christian Life Church Memphis, 9375 Davies Plantation Road in Bartlett; Arlington Safe Room, 11842 Otto Lane in Arlington; Briarwood Church, 1900 N.
