Voting registers list the persons who were eligible to vote, or those who voted. Sometimes the date and court of naturalization are mentioned in voting records. Often these records are available on a yearly basis. You can use them to show where your ancestor lived in a certain year.

Eligible voters in Tennessee paid a tax for the privilege of voting. Tennessee Taxation explains this criteria.

Original poll (voter) lists may be in the custody of county clerks. Some larger counties have separate Election Commissions. The Family History Library has few such lists for Tennessee. Those available are listed in the Place-name Search of the FamilySearch Catalog under
