For voters who meet a reason under Tennessee law to vote absentee by-mail, the next step is to submit a written request to the Lincoln County Election Commission by mail, fax or email.

Your request must include:

  • full social security number
  • date of birth
  • The address to mail the ballot to, if different than your home address
  • For the August election, to receive a primary ballot, you must request either a Republican or Democratic primary ballot. If a party is not specified, you will only receive the general election ballot.
  • Which of the qualifying reasons you meet to vote absentee by-mail. For example, I am 60 years old.
  • Your signature


While not required, a phone number is recommended in case the Lincoln County Election Commission needs any additional information.
