Download an absentee request form
A person must have registered in person or voted in at least one election in order to vote absentee by mail.
A voter who desires to vote by mail must request a ballot application no more than ninety (90) days and no less than seven (7) days before the election. An application to vote by mail can be returned by hand delivery, mail, fax at (731) 660-1824, or e-mail attachment.
**Note: A request for an application to vote by mail sent by e-mail must contain an attachment which serves as the application for ballot. The attachment application must contain all required information including the voter's signature. (A request for a ballot sent by e-mail without the attachment will not be processed.)
The voter may have anyone they choose write their request for a ballot or for a voting by mail application. The voter must sign or make a mark where required. If the applicant or voter is so disabled that they cannot write a signature or make a mark where required, the action of the person who offers assistance shall be witnessed by one additional person. Both the person giving assistance and the witness shall sign their names and provide their addresses.
A request to vote by mail is good for one election only. If a voter wishes to vote by mail for each election, a new request must be submitted during the proper time period.
For more information, contact the Election Commission at (731) 660-1796.
