If you have circumstances that prevent you from voting during the regular early voting period or on election day, you may utilize the Mail Procedure.

Each qualified voter that wishes to vote early by mail must submit an application to the early voting clerk for each election. You may apply if you are eligible and qualify for one of the four reasons below:

    1. 65 years of age or older
    2. Disability
    3. Expected absence from the county (Ballot can only be mailed to an address outside Anderson County)
    4. Confinement in jail (not finally convicted of a felony)

Applications may not be submitted more than 60 days before election day and must be received by this office no later than the 11th day before election day. 

To request an absentee ballot call us at (903) 723-7438.  You can also download and print the Absentee Ballot Application, complete the application (if not completed properly, you will receive a rejection letter) then put the completed application in an envelope and mail with postage to:
