Everything you need to know about early voting in the Nashville August 6 elections.


What do you need to register online?

To register to vote online, you just need a TN Drivers License! That’s it! If you don’t have this, you’ll have to register by mail. You can download and fill out the paperwork here, but remember, it has to have been postmarked by July 7th for the August 6th election. Don’t let that stop you from registering now though, we’ll have more elections in November including the presidential election. If you just want to double check your status, or need to update your info, you can do that right here, too!

What if I’ve moved recently?

If you’ve moved since last voting, you should update your information here. This will save you some hassle on election day to make sure you spend as little time at the polling station as possible!

Election day is always so busy. How do I vote early to avoid the lines?

The early voting period in Nashville begins 20 days before the election day and ends five days prior to the election day. That means for the August 6 elections, you can vote early between July 17 and August 1st. No need to worry about finding your own polling location; early voters can vote at any of the locations noted here.

As of July 21, we’ve had almost 14,000 Nashvillians vote early!

I’m concerned about standing in line due to the pandemic. Can I vote by mail?

Normally, you’d have to meet certain criteria in order to qualify. However, in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Davidson county has recently lifted this requirement*, allowing all registered voters to request an absentee ballot here! Keep in mind, you’ll have to request a ballot by July 30th in order to vote by mail in the August 6th elections.

*Please note that there is some anticipation that Tennessee AG Herbert Slatery III may appeal this decision. For now, vote by mail is an option for everyone, and we will update this page if anything changes!
