Early Voting is only in the Election Office; whereas,
Election Day voting is at the Precincts (a.k.a, Polling Places) throughout the county.
Early voting is one of two ways in which a registered voter of Tennessee may vote before the actual election day. The second way for a registered voter to vote early is called by-mail voting (a.k.a., absentee voting).
These two voting choices, i.e., early voting, by-mail voting, differ in that to vote by-mail, the individual must have a statutory reason. On the other hand, to vote during the early voting period, the person may vote purely for the sake of convenience.
To vote early in Carroll County, TN, a person must appear in person at the County Election Commission office during the designated per election Early Voting time period. The Early Voting period typically begins twenty (20) days before an election and ends five (5) days before an election. Although closed from voting on holidays, a person may vote early on any Saturday that falls during the Early Voting period. In those instances in a city election where there is not any opposition on the ballot, there shall be no Early Voting period.
There are many advantages to voting early, namely being able to choose a day during the Early Voting period that best fits the voter’s schedule and the voter being able to change his address of registration and vote in the same location.
