A Multipartisan Assistance Team, or "MAT," is a group of person appointed by the Davidson County Board of Elections office to provide assistance with mail-in absentee voting to voters living at facilities such as nursing homes, hospitals, clinics, or rest homes. The makeup of the Team includes, at minimum, two people who have different party affiliations (or, in the alternative, persons who were appointed by a by a bipartisan county board of elections). So, if you request help from a MAT, you should receive impartial, professional assistance. Their job is to help you vote, but your voting choices will remain confidential.
Multipartisan Assistance Teams (MATs) are authorized to help voters in the following ways, with specific legal requirements:
In the event that a resident requires the help of a team member with the actual marking of a ballot, the voter's selection is kept in strict confidence.
Contact the activity coordinator of your facility. If you do not know who the activity coordinator is, or if there is no activity coordinator, talk to staff or management at your facility.
You can also contact our office directly to request a MAT team.
