How do I vote by mail in the state of Tennessee?

In order to receive a mail-in absentee ballot, you must send a written request to the county election commission office by mail, fax, or email, which specifies your name, address, social security number, alternate address (if you will be outside the county during early voting and Election Day), the election in which you wish to vote (including your political party, in the case of a primary election), your reason for requesting a mail-in ballot, and your signature. Mail-in ballots may only be requested for the time period running from ninety (90) days prior to the election until seven (7) days prior to the election. If you are qualified, you will receive a ballot by mail, which you must return to the county election commission office.
