Press Release

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper (TN-05) and Cheatham County Mayor Kerry McCarver this Friday will speak with Cheatham County students at Sycamore High School and Harpeth High School on the importance of registering to vote. The Cheatham County Election Commission staff will visit Sycamore High School to register students on Tuesday, Jan. 16, and Harpeth High School on Wednesday, Jan. 17.

Local media are welcome to attend both events this Friday.

Partnering with the Cheatham County Election Commission, Rep. Cooper and Mayor McCarver will be addressing a number of topics related to voter registration and participation.

The visits seek to replicate Rep. Cooper and state Sen. Steve Dickerson’s successful bipartisan voter registration drive in Davidson County a few years ago, when the county high school voter registration rate increased 85% after similar visits to Nashville-area high schools.

Rep. Cooper represents Cheatham, Davidson and Dickson counties in Congress. Logistical details for his Friday appearances are below.

Sycamore High School Voter Registration Assembly: 11:00 CT, 1021 Old Clarksville Pike, Pleasant View, Tenn.

Harpeth High School Voter Registration Assembly: 2:00 CT, 170 E. Kingston Springs Road, Kingston Springs, Tenn.

NOTE: E-mail updates will be provided to media if schools are closed Friday due to inclement weather.
