How can I check the status of my absentee by-mail ballot?

The Secretary of State’s Absentee By-Mail Ballot Status Tracker tool allows voters to track the status of their absentee by-mail ballot.

The deadline to request a by-mail ballot has passed. To facilitate timely receipt of voted absentee by-mail ballots on Election Day, the U. S. Postal Service has designated a post office in each of the 95 counties for voters to expedite the mailing of their completed absentee by-mail ballot. Voters are requested to mail their ballot by 3:00 p.m. local time November 3 at the post office designated for the county. County election officials will pick up the ballots after 3 pm on Election Day. Tennessee law does not allow for third party political operatives to collect ballots on behalf of voters.
