Democrats seek details on Tenn. voting problems

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) — Democrats in the state House have written a letter to elections officials seeking to find out how many people were given improper ballots or were otherwise prevented from voting in the Aug. 2 primary.

The letter dated Tuesday and signed by 25 House Democrats says it is "unacceptable" to deny registered voters full participation in elections.

The lawmakers want Secretary of State Tre Hargett to respond to questions about how many voters received the wrong ballot, whether there is a uniform procedure to make voters aware of how to obtain the correct ballot and how many people were denied the right to vote due to problems with presenting government-issued photo identification.

State Election Coordinator Mark Goins responded that the main issue was in Shelby County. He has asked for a performance audit of the vote.
