Registered voters in Tennessee must confirm their identity with a photo ID when they vote in person.
You are exempted from such ID requirement if:
- you are a resident of a licensed nursing home or assisted living center where you vote
- you are hospitalized
- you have a religious objection to being photographed
- you are indigent and unable to obtain a photo ID without paying a fee
You must sign a sworn affidavit.
Otherwise, you may cast a provisional ballot. You take additional action for your ballot to count.
In order for your ballot to count, you must bring a valid ID to the election commission office and sign an affidavit before the close of business, two business days after the election.
