Voting for Tillman is easy

Democratic Primary is Tuesday, March 3, 2020

To make sure your vote counts, a photo ID is required when you vote. All voters must present an ID containing the voter's name and photograph when voting at the polls, whether voting early or on Election Day. Any of the following IDs may be used, even if expired:

  • Tennessee drivers license with your photo
  • United States Passport
  • Photo ID issued by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security
  • Photo ID issued by the federal or Tennessee state government
  • United States Military photo ID
  • State-issued handgun carry permit with your photo

IDs that are not acceptable:

  • College student IDs and photo IDs not issued by the federal or Tennessee state government

If you do not bring a valid photo ID to the polling place you may vote a provisional ballot. You will then have two business days after Election Day to return to the election commission office to show a valid ID.

Who is exempt?

  • Voters who vote absentee by mail
  • Voters who are residents of a licensed nursing home or assisted living center and who vote at the facility
  • Voters who are hospitalized
  • Voters with a religious objection to being photographed
  • Voters who are indigent and unable to obtain a photo ID without paying a fee

Absentee Ballot Process


Tennessee has two forms of absentee voting: absentee voting in person and absentee voting by mail. Under preexisting Tennessee law, first-time voters who register to vote by mail cannot vote by absentee ballot; they must vote in person. To vote by mail, you must fall under one of the following categories:

  • You will be outside the county of registration during the early voting period and all day on Election Day
  • You or your spouse are enrolled as a full-time student in an accredited college or university outside the county of registration
  • Your licensed physician has filed a statement with the county election commission stating that, in the physician's judgment, you are medically unable to vote in person. The statement must be filed not less than 7 days before the election and signed under the penalty of perjury
  • You reside in a licensed facility providing relatively permanent domiciliary care, other than a penal institution, outside your county of residence
  • You will be unable to vote in person due to service as a juror for a federal or state court
  • You are 60 or older
  • You have a physical disability and an inaccessible polling place
  • You are hospitalized, ill, or physically disabled and because of such condition cannot vote in person
  • You are a caretaker of a person who is hospitalized, ill, or disabled
  • You are a candidate for office in the election
  • You serve as an election day official or as a member or employee of the election commission
  • Your observance of a religious holiday prevents you from voting in person during the early voting period and on Election Day
  • You possess a valid commercial driver's license and certify that you will be working outside the state or county of registration during the early voting period and all day on Election Day

You may request a by mail ballot by writing to the Davidson County elections office or fill out an absentee ballot request here. 

Provisional Voting


Provisional ballots are counted within 4 business days after Election Day.

If you claim to be registered but are not on the list, you can receive a provisional ballot for later verification. Ballots are eligible for verification if votes are cast in the correct precinct. Tennessee does not provide a limited provisional ballot.

Time Off To Vote


Employers must grant employees up to three hours paid leave to vote, unless polls are open three hours before or after regular working shift. Employees must request this time by noon the day before Election Day, and the employer may specify when during the working day employees may take time off.

Provisions for Voters with Disabilities


Polling places are generally accessible and the voting machines comply with HAVA. If you have disabilities, you are allowed to bring someone to help you vote.You may also request assistance from poll workers. Such assistance will be provided by two poll workers, one from each party. For more information, you can utilize the American Association of People With Disabilities (AAPD) resource.
