Hello, my name is [your name], and I'm a voter in Tennessee. (wait for reply) I want to be able to vote safely. I should not be forced to choose between my health -- and the health of people I love -- and my right to vote.
Voters in nearly every other state already have the option to vote absentee this year. Some Tennesseans already have that option, too. Just like them, I want the freedom to choose the safest way to cast my ballot, especially during this global pandemic.
[Optional: Share why it's important to you personally that the expanding absentee voting during the pandemic.]
Can I count on [Governor Lee/My Representative] to protect my health, and my family's health, in this global pandemic by expanding the absentee voting system we already have so all registered voters in Tennessee can vote SAFELY this year?
[Wait for a response, ask them “why” and tell us what they say on the form at the right!]
