STATE LAW

Tennessee

Tenn. Code Ann. § 2-6-401

A voter can request an absentee ballot if they are hospitalized with 20 days of the election, delivered by “emergency registrars.” A voter can vote in-person absentee between five days and one day before the election if there is a death in the family or they receive a subpoena requiring their absence on Election Day.

 

COVID-19 and Patient Voting

Here is how COVID-19 is affecting Patient Voting in this state:

You may vote by absentee ballot to avoid being physically present at a polling station if you meet one of the state's requirements for absentee voting, such as being over the age of 60, hospitalized or ill, or the caretaker of someone who is hospitalized or ill. More information can be found here. If you are in home quarantine due to COVID-19, you may attempt to file an absentee voting application under the condition of "hospitalized, ill, or physically disabled and because of such condition, cannot vote in person" but there is no guarantee that this application would be accepted.
