Absentee Voter Information

Tennessee registered voters may vote at the precinct on election day or, if eligible, may cast an absentee ballot by mail or in the County Clerk’s office prior to Election Day.

Absentee ballots can only be obtained by contacting your local county election commission office.

Early Voting Information

For voters' convenience, the State of Tennessee allows early voting in person during a 13-15 day window.

Your early voting location is your local county election commission office. The county election commission has the ability to open satellite offices as needed.

Early voting begins 20 days prior to an election and ends 7 days prior to a Presidential election, or 5 days prior to any other election. Click here for more information
