Pursuant to the June 4, 2020 Order of the Davidson County Chancery Court, if you are a registered voter and do not wish to vote in-person due to the COVID-19 situation, you are eligible to request an absentee ballot by mail. You also have the option to vote in-person during early voting or on Election Day. Attorney General Herbert Slatery III announced he is seeking an immediate appellate review and a stay pending of his appeal. We will update this as additional details are available. If you submit an absentee ballot request, be prepared to vote at the poll if you do not receive an absentee ballot by election day. We will update this site as additional information becomes available. There is a link to the Absentee Ballot on the TN.gov site below.
