Tennessee Voting Machines

The voting systems used in Tennessee are optical scan and DRE.

Tennessee Provisional Voting

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.

Tennessee 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.

Tennessee Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible to vote in Tennessee you must be

  • A U.S. citizen
  • 18 years or older before the date of the election
  • A resident of Tennessee (The residence of a person is the place where the person's habitation is fixed and is where, during the periods of absence, the person definitely intends to return.)
  • Not disqualified under the law
