TN Supreme Court Rules on Mail-In Ballots

AP – The Tennessee Supreme Court has overturned the option for all eligible voters to vote by mail in November due to COVID-19. Wednesday’s ruling nixes a June expansion order by a lower court that state election officials opposed. The decision came the same day voters could begin requesting absentee ballots for the general election.


It restores Tennessee’s excuse-based system for November, with COVID-19 related additions that include underlying health conditions for voters and those in their care.


The justices wrote the decision doesn’t impact ballots for Thursday’s primary.
