Or, they can download an application and submit or postmark it to the county election commission office by Monday.

Early voting runs Oct. 14 to Oct. 29, Monday through Saturday.

Tennessee’s deadline to request an absentee ballot is Oct. 27. Officials are urging voters to act earlier because completed ballots must be received by mail before Election Day polls close.
